‘Butanding’ bring revenue to Pangasinan town
MetadataShow full item record
Resorts and boat owners in this coastal town have been cashing in on the presence of “butanding” (whale sharks) here. Lina Paculan, a chambermaid at Sierra Vista Resort in Barangay (village) Nibaliw here, said more tourists had been arriving there, especially on weekends. Four butanding have been in the waters off the resort-dotted beaches of this town since early May. These are members of a pod that visited the area last year, said Dr. Westly Rosario, chief of the National Integrated Fisheries Technology Development Center here.
