Lake Buhi - Camarines Sur Attractions

Lake Buhi

Lake Buhi is located at Sta. Elena, Buhi, Camarines Sur, Philippines.


Lake Buhi, an important natural and economic resource in the area, was formed with the eruption of Mt. Asog, a prominent yet now dormant volcano. The major economic activities in Buhi are agriculture and fishing, both of which depend greatly on the lake's resources. It provides almost 4-5 metric tons of fish a day. One important fish in the lake is Sinarapan (Mistichthys luzonensis). This tasty local delicacy is a source of pride for Buhi and the whole country as well. Sinarapan has been recorded in the Guiness World Record as the world's smallest commercial fish. It measures only around 2.1-2.4mm long or smaller than a ten centavo coin. The name Sinarapan came from the word "sarap" which refers to the fine net used for catching this fish.
