What’s Dagupan’s fish cemetery for?
MetadataShow full item record
A little-known place in this city is getting a lot of attention these days, but many beg to ask: “What’s this Fish Cemetery in Barangay Bonuan Binloc for?” The fish cemetery, located at the compound of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources-National Integrated Fisheries Technology and Development Center (BFAR-NIFTDC), was established in February, 1999. Originally, thousand-square-meter lot was a dedicated burial space for a 1.2-ton whale fondly named “Moby Dick” that was beached in Malabon City, Metro Manila. With no place to dispose of the enormous carcass, Moby Dick was “laid to rest” at an 80-square-meter parcel of land here.
