Arriba, ZFPC! PFDA-ZFPC records its highest fish unloading volume so far this 2021
Despite the reimplementation and extension of GCQ in the city, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Zamboanga Fish Port Complex (PFDA-ZFPC) has recorded its highest fish unloading volume for the year 2021 this month of August.
According to the agency’s Modified Integrated Corporate Reporting System (MICRS), PFDA-ZFPC delivered 933.07 metric tons (MT) of fish, equivalent to a 12.77% increase compared to the unloaded fish from the previous month.
Aside from being the highest volume of the year, this month’s log is also the port’s highest unloading record since February 2019.
Based on the data, big-eyed scad, popularly known as matambaka, significantly outranked all the other fish species in terms of volume.
PFDA-ZFPC stands as one of the sturdiest economic pillars in Mindanao despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Hence, the fish port will continue to work round-the-clock to maintain a high volume of quality and affordable fish supply to all its clients and stakeholders in the months to come.
