Fishermen in this small island in central Philippines complained that a gas pipeline going through its territorial waters create vibrations and strange sounds that drive fish away, depriving them of their livelihood, officials said. Nimrod Yagoya, head of the Sibale Island Bantay Dagat, said the Malampaya gas pipeline traverse through the rich fishing ground of Tablas Strait, Sibuyan Sea, and the Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan) region. “The Malampaya pipeline is driving away fish from our municipal waters,” Yagoya said.
