Tilapia growing in Lake Sebu stopped after fish kill
MetadataShow full item record
Officials of Lake Sebu town in South Cotabato province have imposed a three-year ban on tilapia cultivation in Lake Sebu after another fish kill last week laid to waste some 7,000 kilograms of potential tilapia harvest. Lake Sebu Mayor Antonio Fungan said the moratorium would give the 350-hectare lake a respite from pollution brought by massive fish production in recent years. Lake Sebu is the biggest supplier of tilapia in Central Mindanao. Harvests from the lake are also shipped to other markets, including Metro Manila.
