Fewer fish cages help revive Lake Buhi
MetadataShow full item record
Lake Buhi, the habitat of the world’s smallest edible fish locally called sinarapan, is showing signs of recovery three years after authorities launched a campaign to rid the freshwater body of excess fish cages and other structures choking it. The dismantling of fish cages has helped the provincial government of Camarines Sur and concerned national agencies expand spaces in the lake for navigational, buffer and fish sanctuary zones. From 19,000 cages in the 1,650-hectare lake in July 2011, the number has gone down to 16,000, according to lake development officer Ronilo Leal.
