Ship firm pays ₱4M for coral damage
MetadataShow full item record
The Vietnamese shipping company ANH TV Shipping has averted a court battle with the city government of Legazpi by deciding to pay the ₱4 million that the city is demanding for the destruction caused by its cargo vessel on Denson Reef along Albay Gulf. Denson Reef, a 3-hectare coral reef some 4 kilometers from the port of Legazpi, is a marine conservation area being maintained by the city government. An inspection report prepared by the city's Integrated Coastal Resource Management uit and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Bicol said it would take at least five years to rehabilitate Denson Reef.
