Amidst the decreasing number of COVID-19 cases nationwide, various Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) Regional Fish Ports (RFPs) continue to maintain safe and secure facilities by conducting general cleaning and disinfection activities in their respective areas.

Zamboanga Fish Port Complex

On November 28, the PFDA - Zamboanga Fish Port Complex (PFDA-ZFPC) conducted a half-day disinfection measure as part of the port’s continuous effort to fight against the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to better serve its clients. 

PFDA-ZFPC employees, security guards, janitors, and members of the Zeta Phi Omega participated in the clean-up and disinfection of the port facilities. 

Navotas Fish Port Complex

Meanwhile, on November 29, the PFDA - Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC), led by its Food Safety and Environmental Management Unit (FSEMU) and Port Maintenance Division (PMD), held its 21st monthly general cleaning and disinfection activities.

This activity is to maintain a safe and clean environment and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The disinfection team thoroughly cleaned the port premises, including the Entrance Gate / Lambatan area and Market Halls 1 to 5. 

The PFDA-NFPC properly scheduled the cleaning activities in line with the fish trading schedule to avoid a possible increase in fish prices caused by the long-term closure of he fish markets.

As one of the top fish suppliers in NCR and some areas in Luzon, the PFDA-NFPC is committed to continuing these regular disinfection measures to avoid the COVID-19 virus from spreading within the port's vicinity. Despite easing protocols, the port management would like to remind everyone to observe proper health protocols while inside the port. 

Participating in the disinfection activities were volunteers from Ambulant vendors, Irma Fishing and Trading Inc., Chanidae Marketing Corporation, members of the BMIL-BSL and Delta Fire Volunteer Team, Janitorial Services - Manila Alliance Management Services Cooperative (MAMSC), and members of Catalina Security Agency (CSA).
