Artificial reefs revive Oton coast
MetadataShow full item record
The marine life in the southern Iloilo town of Oton will be revived with the continuing installation of artificial reefs. Oton Mayor Vicente Flores said the ceremonial installation Thursday is part of the on-going program to restore the once rich marine ground of the town’s 5,000-hectare municipal water. Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. said the project may bring back the abundance of shell known as lampirong, which is declining in numbers. Defensor added that this is a welcome development as Oton is a neighboring town of Tigbauan, which is home to the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC).
