Subic fishermen refute 'alarmist' LNG yarn
MetadataShow full item record
Local fishermen have disputed claims by leaders of some activist groups in Central Luzon that the ship-to-ship transfer or STS operations of liquefied natural gas in Subic Bay endanger fisherfolk in the area, and that locals were not consulted about the project before its approval by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority. Resty del Rosario and Laureano Artagame, both officials of local Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council, dismissed the claims and pointed out the negative reports came from personalities who do not represent the legitimate concerns of fishermen from Subic Bay. The news items they referred to came out in the alternative news website Kodao and quoted Pamalakaya Central Luzon coordinator Alberto Roldan as saying that STS operations for LNG in Subic “endanger fisher folk as well as civilian establishments and communities in Olongapo City.”
