Red tide returns to two Pangasinan towns
MetadataShow full item record
The red tide alert is on again in the coastal waters of Bolinao and Anda, two towns along the Lingayen Gulf in the northwestern tip of Pangasinan, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said. Dr. Westly Rosario, chief of the BFAR’s National Integrated Fisheries and Technology Development Center, confirmed on Sunday that samples of shellfish obtained from the two towns were found anew to be positive of red tide organism when analyzed in the laboratory. This is compounded by the big volume of nutrients that dropped in the water of the Caquipotan Channel that are not consumed by the fish when caretakers of fish cage owners feed the fish in captivity.
