Fish Kill in the Philippines


Taal Lake in Talisay and Laurel in Batangas Philippines were hit by Fish kill.

Bangus and Tilapia production in the Philippines were largely affected by a massive fishkill that is estimated to reach a total of no less than 800 metric tons yesterday May 28, 2011.

The fishkill was then largely attributed to climate change that triggers the abnormal shift of temperatures within a very short time range.

Although there are some other factors that are being considered such as poisoning and sabotage but the observed sudden temperature change has the most likely acceptable explanation that the farmers would wanted to hear.

As of this writing, the farmers are hoping that the local government of the area and the Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources will join hands in helping them cope up with this tragic loss of livelihood most especially that enrollment period of their respective children will soon commence this first week of June.
