 Haven of rare manta rays found - Jan. 12, 2004
MONREAL, Masbate -- A haven for manta rays has been discovered in a reef between Sorsogon and Masbate provinces, but a group of divers that found the location fear that the gentle creatures will disappear if illegal fishing continues.
Conrad Paz, an international dive master, said the haven was 15 km from Bulan town, Sorsogon, and 10 km from the nearest point of Monreal town on Ticao Island in Masbate.
The manta rays, considered endangered pelagics or ocean creatures, were found in the Tacdogan Reef, which the divers call the "manta bowl" because it abounds in these majestic sea giants.
