Tamban fish found in shores of Zambo Norte town
Hundreds of tamban fish were found near the shores of Barangay Osokan in Labason, Zamboanga del Norte on Monday morning.
The sight surprised residents because it was the first time they had seen it happen.
An official of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said the tamban fish may have been carried by the waves while they were looking for food.
A similar occurrence was seen months back in Dipolog City, where hundreds of live tamban fish virtually jumped into the nets and containers of eager residents.
The fish behavior was attributed to the warming of the sea waters caused by the El Nino.
