Sardinella tawilis are only found in Taal Lake in the province of Batangas, the third largest lake in the Philippines used to be the caldera of an ancient volcano.
The lake was an extension of Balayan Bay. Major eruptions in the 18th century sealed the lake from the sea, eventually leading its waters to be one of a few former marine species trapped within the lake that have evolved into purely freshwater species. Taal volcano, still active, is the only island volcano located inside a lake in the world.
