The fish kill has affected millions of milk fish in the area.
BULACAN, Philippines – The municipal government of Obando declared a state of calamity Tuesday, May 15, due to massive fish kill that began on May 5.
The fish kill has affected a total of 233 hectares of fish ponds, killing millions of milk fish in the area.
According to Mayor Edwin Santos, the declaration will provide financial assistance to affected fishpond owners and fishermen to recover from their losses.
“Malaking lugi so kailangan natin tulungan para makabawi…Pwede silang humingi ng tulong sa bangko at makapag loan para mabigyan sila ng pagkakataon. Pwede rin matulungan sila ng ating (Bureau of) Fisheries mabigyan sila ng binhi,” Mayor Santos said.
(It’s a big loss so we need to help so that they can recoup their investments…they may seek bank loans to start over. The Bureau of Fisheries may also assist them by providing fingerlings.)
Following the declaration of state of calamity, fish pond owners and fishermen may request additional fingerlings to the initial 3,000 provided by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR.)
BFAR released on May 10 the result of its examination of water samples from Obando fish ponds.
The agency found that extreme hot temperature is causing lack of oxygen and production of amonia in fish ponds in the area resulting in fish kill.
Meanwhile, the municipal government of Obando is planning to establish a laboratory that would study and monitor the state of fish manufacturing in the town to prevent another massive fishkill in the future.— Nestor Torres | UNTV News & Rescue
