Laguna Lake Development Authority will start dismantling next month the 30 fish pens the agency prioritized for removal from dying Laguna de Bay, the Philippines’ largest lake as part of a rehabilitation program, LLDA general manager Jaime Medina said Friday. Citing Philippine Statistics Authority data, Medina said fisheries production in Laguna de Bay reached some 68,600 metric tons last year. Aquaculture and open fishing accounted for 57,000 metric tons and 11,600 metric tons of such total production, respectively, he noted.
