In response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila, the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Central Office (PFDA-CO) located in Diliman, Quezon City continues to conduct intensive disinfection activities on April 9, to bolster its fight against the spread of COVID-19.

On the other hand, PFDA – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) conducted its monthly general cleaning on April 10 to assure safety and security of everyone in the port’s vicinity against the virus.

Aside from the PFDA - NFPC management, volunteers from various market traders associations and groups also participated in the event.

During the time of disinfection in PFDA - NFPC, some market operations were temporarily halted, particularly the night trading, but port management guaranteed that the price of fish will not be affected by the momentary closure of the markets and that there is enough supply of fish for everyone.

As the government puts NCR under a less strict Modified ECQ on April 12, PFDA-CO will continue to fully operate with limited workforce on-site and carry out unhampered services and operations for its stakeholders under work-from-home set up to assure the safety of its employees, clients, and the public. 

PFDA continues to remind everyone to follow minimum public health standards against COVID-19. Amid the easing of quarantine protocols in NCR, proper use of face mask and shield, physical distancing, and frequent hand washing is still highly recommended to avoid the further spread of the virus.

 Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – General Santos Fish Port Complex (PFDA-GSFPC), which takes pride as the jewel of the “Tuna Capital of the Philippines”, registered a significant unloading record of 65,970.70 metric tons (MT) of fish supply, the highest unloading volume across all Regional Fish Ports (RFPs) during the 1st quarter of 2021.

According to reports from the Operations Services Division (OSD), PFDA-GSFPC has unloaded 23,511.58 MT for March, the most fish supply over all RFPs for the quarter. Moreover, PFDA-GSFPC registered 21,858.28 MT and 20,600.84 MT for January and February, respectively, distributed through all its consumers across Southern Philippines and some areas in the National Capital Region. 

Aside from being the leading supplier of various tuna species and other fish species in the country, PFDA-GSFPC also serves as a prime location for fish trading and post-harvest as General Santos City homes several tuna canneries. 

A total of 3,974.47 MT of fish supply has been delivered by PFDA-GSFPC to canneries, processors, and local markets across GenSan during the 1st quarter of the year. 

Furthermore, PFDA-GSFPC also supplies fish to several provinces in Western, Central, and Eastern Visayas, and Eastern and Northern Mindanao, SOCCSKSARGEN, and the Zamboanga Peninsula. 

Most of the fish supply caught by PFDA-GSFPC are collected through reefer vessels and via trucking and air travel. On the other hand, the rich waters of Moro Gulf and Davao Gulf provide some of the most sought-after fish species, like tuna, that are popular not only in the Philippines but overseas as well. 

For PFDA-GSFPC, the volume of fish unloading is divided into four sectors: aquaculture, marine, overland, and frozen. During the 1st quarter, frozen fish supply showed a significant and consistent increase as months passed by, trailed by gradual increments from the rest of the sectors. 

 Yellowfin Tuna, Bullet Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Bigeye Scad, and Flying Fish are among the top fish species with the highest availability record for the quarter. 

PFDA-GSFPC upholds its promise to continuously provide its clients and stakeholders with adequate supply as we enter the 2nd quarter of the year. The port has already unloaded 1,604.04 MT of fish supply for its consumers during the first four days of April.
