Fishermen fill up jugs with dirty seawater in Zamboanga

A man fills his rubber jugs Saturday, May 30, 2009 with dirty sea water from Cawa-Cawa beach in Zamboanga City in the southern Philippines to soak fishes they will sell at the market. The beach is also a favorite destination of picnickers, but the seawater poses hazards to health because of the high level of E-coli (Escherichia coli) bacteria and germs. There are no signs posted along the stretch of the Cawa-Cawa beach which is near the Brent hospital and the Port of Zamboanga to warn the public of the polluted water.
