Fishing in a River of Trash - part1

I had posted earlier this month about the garbage polluting the river that flows into Tarlac City here. 30Km downstream in the center of Tarlac City, things get much worse.

Passing through the city I often see people of all ages fishing in the river, despite its extreme level of pollution. Today I saw four young boys with a battery and two long prods shocking fish to catch them. They were also collecting coconuts from the river.
