Starting the new quarter with a significant success, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) has recorded its second-highest unloading volume of the year after unloading 20,000.86 metric tons (MT) of fish and fishery products in October 2021. 

According to the agency’s Modified Integrated Corporate Reporting System (MICRS), the October 2021 data is PFDA-NFPC’s highest jump in total monthly unloading record for the whole year. Based on the report, this volume is a 69.99 percent increase compared to last month's data. In addition, this record is the second 20K MT mark attained by PFDA-NFPC in 2021. 

During the last week of October 2021, galunggong remains on top of the list of fish species with the highest supply. Completing the top five list of species with the highest availability were milkfish (bangus), tilapia, dalagang-bukid, and skipjack tuna.

With the closed fishing season fast approaching, the PFDA-NFPC will continue to work day and night to maintain this high volume of fishery products available for all its clients and stakeholders. 

As the leading fish supplier of the National Capital Region and some parts of Central and South Luzon, the fish port commits to providing an adequate supply of fish for all in the months to come.
