Predator fish in sausages, dumplings
MetadataShow full item record
Knife fish sausage, anyone? The predator fish considered undesirable in Laguna de Bay will be processed into sausages and dumplings soon by a P600,000 facility in the lakeshore town of Pila in Laguna province in what is regarded a first-of-a-kind initiative. The food program aims to “minimize, since it looks like we can’t eradicate anymore, [the effects of the] knife fish (in Laguna de Bay),” Mayor Wilfredo Quiat of the third-class municipality (annual income: P35 million-P45 million) of some 50,000, said in a phone interview. Knife fish (Chitala ornata) is an ornamental species that, according to the Laguna Lake Development Authority, found its way into the lake after escaping from an aquarium at the height of Tropical Storm “Ondoy” in 2009.
