Demolition of fish pens in Laguna Lake starts
MetadataShow full item record
Two fish pens, occupying about 100 hectares in the Laguna Lake, were demolished early Tuesday as part of the government’s effort to ease the overly congested water body covering parts of Laguna and Rizal provinces and Metro Manila. The pens, each occupying about 50 ha, are owned by Seven Eleven Fishing Corp. According to records of the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), the pens went through several changes of ownership over the years without proper documentation with the agency.
