Cargo Ship Grounding Off Albay Damages Coral Reefs

Coral reefs in the vicinity of Legazpi, Albay were damaged by a Vietnam-flagged cargo vessel which ran aground 900 yards off the entrance of Legazpi City Port last Monday, June 15.

MV Ocean 03, with 4,532 gross tonnages and manned by 21 Vietnamese crew, reportedly ran aground and hit the marine environment at the area while maneuvering en route to Albay Gulf.

The incident was reported by Renan Del Mundo of Bantay Dagat-Legazpi to the personnel of Coast Guard Station (CGS) Albay which immediately deployed its men along with representatives from the Port State Control Division.

At around three in the afternoon, MV Ocean 03 was pulled from its agrounding site and maneuvered northeast of Legazpi Port, CGS informed.

Capt. Tran Dai Nghia confirmed that no oil spill was seen at the area.
