Fish from Taal Lake safe to eat, says fisheries body
MetadataShow full item record
Despite the eruption of Taal Volcano, the consumption of fish from Taal Lake is safe, according to the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DA- BFAR). The volcano sits on top of the lake. The assurance came after the Department of Health (DoH) last week warned the public not to buy and eat fish from Taal Lake and nearby Batangas province, saying sulfur from the rumbling volcano could affect marine life there.
