Shrimps, Crabs and Other Marine Species Now Being Affected by Massive Fishkill in Taal Lake, Philippines


“MANILA, Philippines – Other marine species are now being affected by the fishkill in Taal Lake, which earlier killed over 500 metric tons of bangus and tilapia. Authorities said the fishkill could last for 2 more months.

According to Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR)-Calabarzon officer-in-charge Regional Director Esmeralda Manalang, dead shrimps, crabs, biya and other seafood were also found floating in Taal Lake. However, Manalang said the number of the affected species is not overwhelming.

Authorities said that the fishkill will continue in the coming days since the salt oxygen level in the lake has not reached the normal level yet.” Read more.
