Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA), through its Regional Fish Ports (RFP), ended the year with a significant jump of 41.33 percent in its aggregate fish unloading volume by delivering 45,355.24 metric tons (MT) of fish to clients and stakeholders in December 2022.

Despite the implementation of closed fishing seasons in the Visayan Sea, Northern Palawan, and Zamboanga Peninsula, the PFDA – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) almost doubled its unloading volume in December. The Navotas port showed tenacity by ending the year positively with 15,493.89 MT of fish (86.56% increase).

Also, the PFDA – General Santos Fish Port Complex (PFDA-GSFPC) maintained a productive streak in December. Reports showed that the GenSan port delivered 25,531.63 MT of fish (7.61% increase).

On the other hand, the PFDA – Lucena Fish Port Complex (PFDA-LFPC) and the PFDA – Iloilo Fish Port Complex (PFDA-IFPC) managed to keep their volumes in the thousands after unloading 1,510.38 MT and 1,339.38 MT of fish to their consumers, respectively.

Meanwhile, the PFDA – Zamboanga Fish Port Complex (PFDA-ZFPC) experienced severe Christmas rain and thunderstorms. Despite that, the Zamboanga port delivered 676.235 MT of fish to its clients and stakeholders.

In addition, the PFDA – Bulan Fish Port Complex (PFDA-BFPC) had a slight dip in its monthly unloading volume. Still, the PFDA-BFPC sold 438.48 MT of fish, respectively. 

Subsequently, the PFDA - Davao Fish Port Complex (PFDA-DFPC) recorded 310.72 MT of fish as of December 23, 2022. Fish transshipment operations are back at the Davao port. With that, fish unloading volume is expected to significantly increase in the days to come. 

Additionally, due to the simultaneous enforcement of closed fishing seasons in various major fishing grounds, the PFDA – Sual Fish Port (PFDA-SFP) suffered a slight setback in fish unloading but still managed to bring 54.53 MT of fish to its consumers.
