Pangasinan towns close fish pens to heal Kakiputan Channel
MetadataShow full item record
The two towns in Pangasinan province, which lost P110 million due to the fishkill incidents last month, have stopped all fish pen operations to give Kakiputan Channel and other fish culture areas time to heal. On June 8, Mayor Arnold Celeste of Bolinao town ordered a two-year moratorium on all aquaculture operations at the channel in Barangays Luciente II, Culang and Luna, saying the fishkill was evidence that environmental damage on the waters needed time to be repaired. He also ordered the harvest of remaining stocks not later than Nov. 15.
