Whale sharks become instant attraction in Albay
MetadataShow full item record
Local officials have taken measures to protect seven "butanding" or whale sharks that are in the waters about 150 meters from this city's shore for over a week now. They had banned fishing in the area within the vicinity of the butanding, said city agriculture Armi Brobio. To compensate the fishermen, their bancas are made available for hire by local residents or tourists who want to get closer to the whale sharks.
