Witnessed by at least 5 other fishermen, Cebu Custom Examiner Periong Satina, caught what appeared to be a 18-year old mermaid (serena or kataw) while fishing at the pantalan.
Either scared of revenge from other under-the-sea creatures, or probably his wife, Malda, may not like the prospect of keeping an extremely beautiful half-woman, half-fish mammal at their house, Periong decided to let go of the mermaid. (MM)
