Pansipit River

Pansipit River is the sole outlet of Lake Taal towards Balayan Bay.

The river was once known as Taa-lan, after the Taa-lan tree which grew on its banks and on the shores of Lake Taal (formerly known as Bombon Lake).

The river stretches about nine kilometers long, coursing through the municipalities of Agoncillo, San Nicolas, Lemery, and Taal.

Since Pansipit River connects the freshwaters of Taal and the saline Balayan Bay, it hosts a unique marine biodiversity including the indigenous tawilis (freshwater herring ), talakitok (bigeye trevally fish), and maliputo (giant trevally).
