MetadataShow full item record
GreenPeace Philippines, a group that advocates for environment conservation, slammed Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez’s action of stocking 20,000 tilapia fingerlings (St. Peter’s fish) in the protected Lake Danao, a move that may kill the province’s local fish industry. In an interview, Greenpeace Southeast Asia regional oceans research coordinator Ephraim Batungbacal warned that culturing of tilapia (St. Peter’s fish) in the lake may cause pollution in the water as the said species are known for eating other fishes.
