Businesses blamed for Olongapo fish kill
MetadataShow full item record
Fish along the Kalalake River here floated dead on Tuesday night, providing free food to residents who live beside the river that empties into Subic Bay. But authorities are looking into allegations the fish kill was due to Subic firms operating near the river. Kalalake Village head Randy Sionzon said manufacturing facilities within the Subic Bay Freeport which operate near the river allegedly “pour their waste into the drainage canals that lead to here.”
