Mayor Adelino Sitoy has demanded P126.8 million compensation form two shipping companies that collided in the waters of this coastal town and caused massive spill six months ago, lawyers said. He said among the affected areas in Cordova were the barangays of Bangbang, Day-as, Alegria, Poblacion, Catarman and Buagson, but even the sale of bakasi, the saltwater eel found in the area, have picked up. Loyola said mangrove destruction was minimal and little crabs, birds, including the white heron, have become abundant.
