According to GMA News, the fishes were buried over the weekend after they were discovered last Friday in a portion in the said Lake in Barangay Gulod.

Rose Marie Serrano, a resident in the area, said that this year’s kill is nothing compared to last year’s 600 tons.

“Namatay po ‘yong iba ay kakaunti po naman ‘yon,” 

Experts earlier explained that fish kill occurs when dissolved oxygen in water is lowered.

Barangay Gulod chairperson Gregorio Serrano said that fishermen there still had a hart time recovering from a series of calamities since January.

Based on the report, Serrano hoped that there will be no more fish kills for them to continue their livelihood.

It has been remembered that on January, Taal Volcano erupted, affecting the lives of residents near Taal Lake.

On June, there were thunderstorms in the province. Due to a series of calamities, netizens thought that this was another eruption of Taal Volcano.
