Arturo (Bong) Molina, MDRRMC chief, said the his office had radioed all coastal village chiefs to be watchful in their respective barangays and as much as possible advise local fishermen to be cautious from venturing into deep fishing activities until an official announcement from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) declaring no sighting or presence of the killer shark in the Aurora waters is made. “Nakikipagkonsulta na po kami sa BFAR upang alamin kung may posibilidad ba na may kasamang grupo ng mga pating ang killer shark na natagpuan sa dalampasigan.
