3 kg-tilapia caught in Pasig River's Estero de San Miguel
Said fish weighed over 3 kilograms with a length of 20.5 inches. PRRC River Warriors were conducting its regular clean-up operations in Estero de San Miguel when the surface of the waterway ruptured, spewing a huge fish into the air to their surprise. Estero de San Miguel is a 2.3-kilometer tributary of the Pasig River located in Manila by P. Casal Bridge. According to PRRC Executive Director Jose Antonio E. Goitia, it was a good sign that life has returned to the river and its tributaries. He also emphasized that it is also due to the PRRC's strategic rehabilitation of the waterways. “If we continue to work together in cleaning our waterways and surroundings, more aquatic resources will thrive in these bodies of water, and we could eventually have a free source of food,” Goitia said.
“Expect more good news about our esteros in Manila because the good Mayor Domagoso is helping us get rid of the sources of pollution in his locality. You can check the clean Estero de Binondo. We have no more problem with the vendors,” the PRRC chief added.
