Mainit Lake

Lake Mainit, the fourth largest lake in the Philippines, is geographically located between the Provinces of Surigao del Norte and Agusan del Norte, in the Island of Mindanao (9020.32”-9031.98” N Latitude and 125028.50” E Longitude). It is also the deepest with a maximum depth of about 223 m and a mean depth of about 128 m. It is one of the most productive lakes in the country ranking only third to Laguna de Bay (Balayut, 1983).

The lake is the haven of several commercial species of fish that are a source of livelihood of fishermen around the lakeshore. There are about 12 species of fish identified in the lake (Lewis, 1973), seven of which are commercially exploited by fishermen (Gracia, 1981). Some of them are either migratory or were introduced by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) or by some private individuals to augment the fish stocks in the lake. The most dominant fish in the lake in terms of fish catch are the gobies (pidianga) which constitute about 63.3% of the total daily catch (Gracia, 1981). The rest of the catches are distributed among the other groups such as tilapia, mudfish, catfish, common carp, eel and some miscellaneous species. The most dominant species of phytoplankton are the blue green and green algae and some diatoms. The zooplankton species are dominated bycopepods and rotifers. - source
