Fish found dead in protected zone

At least 30 tubs of dead fish were found floating in the Las Pinas-Paranaque Critical Habitat Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA) yesterday morning.
Las Pinas public information office chief Jimmy Castellano told Philippine Star that species such as sapsap, asuhos, silinyasi and flatfish were recovered near the LPPCHEA’s Freedom Island.
Officials of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, as well as the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), have collected water samples to determine what led to the fishkill, Castellano said.
Among the possible causes are contaminated water and climate change, he added.
Cesar Canoy, Las Pinas agriculture chief, said the recovered fish is valued at P700,000 to P1mn.
BFAR warned the public not to eat the fish pending the results of its investigation.
