A strangled mola-mola or “Sunfish” has been rescued by the residents of Barangay Bunganay at the town of Boac in Marinduque.
On Wednesday (July 21, 2021), the residents of Barangay Bunganay rescued a huge mola-mola along the coastal area of Marinduque. The unique sea creature has been trapped in shallow waters.
The Sunfish has a length of 6-feet, width of 4-feet and a weight 200 kilogram. The residents at the village worked together to rescue and return the sea creature into the deeper part of the ocean.
According to Marinduque Animal and Wildlife Rescue Emergency Response Team, they were able to return the giant fish into the ocean in time with the help of ‘punong barangay’ and residents who immediately reported the incident.
The rescue team also said that the sea creature is already experiencing fatigue and weakening when they found it.
Previously, the sightings of deep-sea creatures in shallow water have been linked to impending natural calamities and disasters. A Japanese seismologist said that deep-sea creatures are sensitive and their appearance in shallow waters indicates that something is happened under the sea bed.
