A fisherman sprinkles fresh water to fish being dried in Barangay Sapa 2, one of the several villages of Cavite province affected by the oil spill on August 10, 2013. The fish dryers are affected in a way because they have to get water to clean the fish for drying from afar because the water within the 15-kilometer area affected by the diesel oil leak is contaminated with oil. Greenpeace laments the serious ecological and health hazards caused by the diesel oil spill in Rosario, Cavite that has already damaged the marine environment and threatens the lives and livelihoods of communities in the affected coastal areas
