PFDA-ZFPC keeps its unloading streak alive during the more stringent MECQ

With the Zamboanga Peninsula placed in a more stringent Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) until June 15, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Zamboanga Fish Port Complex aims to keep its unloading streak alive despite the dangers connected with the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the city. 

According to a centralized fish unloading report gathered by PFDA RFPs, Operations Services Department (OSD), and Public Information Division (PID), PFDA-ZFPC recorded 218.68 metric tons (MT) of fish, a three-time increase in its weekly unloading volume since mid-May.                                    

Of this total, matangbaka recorded the highest unloading at 43.25 MT. Sardines (tunsoy and tamban), goatfish, and bakid are also on the list of fish species with the most supply.

Amidst a stricter quarantine protocol, PFDA-ZFPC is committed to ensuring sufficient fish supply for all its consumers and assuring food security during this trying time.

PFDA-GSFPC delivers significant volume of fish for the June 4 to 10, 2021 period

Following the reinstatement of a stricter general community quarantine in General Santos City, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – General Santos Fish Port Complex (PFDA-GSFPC) remained headstrong against the spread of the COVID-19 virus after delivering a significant volume of fish during the June 4 – 10, 2021 unloading period.

According to a centralized fish unloading report collected by PFDA RFPs, Operations Services Department (OSD), and Public Information Division (PID), PFDA-GSFPC managed to unload 5,016.24 metric tons (MT) of fish ­amid the dangers posed by the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Mindanao.

Moreover, the report showed that PFDA-GSFPC maintained a significant volume of fish for buyers, suppliers, and traders despite a 10.46% decline from last week’s unloading that can be related to thorough disinfection activities against the spread of the virus every Sunday.

This week’s decline can also be associated with the onset of the rainy season in the country. 

At 3,296.47 MT, skipjack tuna (sambangon) maintains its position as the top fish species with the highest unloading tally. The list also includes skipjack tuna (gulyasan), bisugo, galunggong, and yellowfin tuna. 

PFDA-GSFPC will continue to deliver a high volume of fishery products for its consumers as GenSan remains under GCQ until the end of the month.

Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) has welcomed the onset of the rainy season with a significantly high unloading volume ever recorded, according to the agency’s Modified Integrated Corporate Reporting System (MICRS) for PFDA Regional Fish Ports. 

During the June 1 to 7, 2021 period, records showed that PFDA-NFPC unloaded 4,464.37 metric tons (MT) of fish supply. By far, this record is one of the highest volumes ever recorded since the start of the second quarter. 

Aside from that, this week's volume was the highest start-of-the-month unloading record compared to April and May.

Galunggong remained as the number one fish species with the highest supply. Bangus, sardines, dalagang-bukid, and tilapia were also on the top common species with the highest availability record.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), intermittent and occasional above normal rainfall conditions brought by the southwest monsoon or hanging habagat will affect Metro Manila and other parts of the country.

Regardless of these unprecedented weather conditions, PFDA-NFPC is up and ready to conquer the pouring rain and supply all its consumers in Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon with adequate and quality fish supply.

Ayon kay PFDA General Manager Atty. Glen A. Pangapalan, napakahalaga at napakaganda ng inisiyatibong ito nang sa gayon ay maipagpatuloy ng ating kasamahang mga mangingisda at mga nagtatrabaho sa loob ng ating fish port ang kanilang operasyon at makasigurado tayo na sila ay protektado laban sa COVID-19.

"Sa ating mga kasama sa PFDA, mga kliyente, at mga stakeholders, tayo po ay bahagi ng A4 economic frontliners. Hindi po nakakatakot ang magpabakuna. Ito ay kailangan natin para tuloy tuloy ang ating pagtatrabaho at protektado rin ang ating mga pamilya. Ipapatuloy din po natin ang ating pag-iingat at pagsunod sa health protocols. Sana po ay sa lalong madaling panahon, tayo pong lahat sa PFDA ay mabakunahan na," panawagan ni GM Pangapalan.

Ipinarating naman ni Navotas City Representative Cong. John Rey M. Tiangco ang kaniyang lubos na pagpapasalamat kay GM Pangapalan at Mayor Toby dahil nasimulan na ang pagpapabakuna para sa mga nasa A4 priority group sa PFDA-NFPC.

"Napakaimportante po nito dahil main industry natin ang pangingisdaan at libo-libong tao po ang pumupunta rito araw-araw. Malaking bagay po kung mapapabakunahan kung maaari ang lahat ng pumapasok sa PFDA-NFPC. Atin pong i-take advantage ang pagkakataon na ito. Layunin din po natin magkaroon ng night shift vaccination para na rin sa convenience ng ating mga economic frontline workers upang makita natin ang tuloy-tuloy na pagbabago," ani Cong. Tiangco.

Ayon kay Navotas City Health Officer Dr. Christia S. Padolina, napaka-importante na ang ating A4 essential workers ay bakunado upang ating mataguyod ang ating pamilya, ang ating ekonomiya, at ang PFDA-NFPC.

"Napakahalaga na bigyan ng atensyon ang ating A4 dito sa Navotas dahil sila ang ating main source of industry bilang ang Navotas ay ang Fishing Capital of the Philippines kaya naman napaka-importante na lahat ng nagtatrabaho sa PFDA-NFPC ay bakunado. Huwag po tayong mag-alala dahil kapag tayo ay bakunado, tayo ay protektado," paghikayat ni Dr. Padolina.

Ayon kay G. Roderic C. Santos, pangulo ng Association of Fresh Fish Traders of the Philippines, napaka-importante ng pagbabakunang ito lalo na sa mga tulad nilang kasapi ng fishing and marketing industry. Aniya, sa PFDA-NFPC nagtitipon ang mga isdang kalakal na patungong Metro Manila, Luzon, at Southern Luzon kaya naman kailangang kailangan ang bakuna upang bumalik sa normal ang pangangalakal ng isda sa Navotas.

"Para sa mga kliyente ng PFDA-NFPC nagdadalawang isip sa pagpapabakuna, hindi po tayo makaka-recover kung hindi tayo magpa-vaccine. Kailangan po natin magkaroon ng herd immunity lalo't higit dito sa ating lugar ng kalakalan. Sana po ay magpa-vaccine na tayo upang maka-recover na tayong lahat," paghihikayat ni G. Santos.

Despite several days of severe weather conditions brought by Tropical Storm Dante, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – General Santos Fish Port Complex (PFDA-GSFPC) conquered rough seas and raging currents to deliver adequate fish supply to its clients and stakeholders during the May 28 to June 3, 2021 unloading period. 

Based on a centralized fish unloading report prepared by PFDA RFPs, Operations Services Department (OSD), and Public Information Division (PID), PFDA-GSFPC managed to unload a significant volume of 5,602.34 metric tons (MT) of fish, only a 1.78 percent decline considering the dangers posed by TS Dante to fishing vessels and port activities. 

Skipjack (gulyasan), skipjack (sambangon), bisugo, yellowfin tuna, and galunggong (frozen) maintained their positions of having the highest availability of supply. 

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the tropical storm may finally exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Saturday (June 5). With that in mind, PFDA-GSFPC will continue to deliver enough fishery products, rain or shine, to all its consumers.

PFDA WEEKLY BRIEFER FOR THE MAY 24 TO 30, 2021 PERIOD

Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) Regional Fish Ports (RFP) finished off another week with 11,494.38 metric tons (MT) of unloaded fish supply, a 4% slide compared from last week’s unloading, during the May 24 to 30, 2021 period.

Based on a two-week comparative report collected by the Operations Services Department (OSD), PFDA RFPs have suffered a slight blow before the month ends. This decline can be related to last week’s Super Flow Blood Moon affecting fishing activities.

According to studies, this natural decline in fish supply may be attributed to said astronomical event causing various fish species to swim deeper to hide from too much light emitted by the moon. 

Aside from that, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported a lingering intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) last week that can also be a factor in this week’s unloading decline.   

Despite the minor contraction in this week’s catch, PFDA – General Santos Fish Port Complex (PFDA-GSFPC) has registered a 4.35% increase (5,227.01 MT) compared to last week’s record.

On the other hand, PFDA – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) may have experienced a 7.80%, but the port still managed to unload 3,688.78 MT of fish for its clients and stakeholders.

In addition, PFDA – Bulan Fish Port Complex (PFDA-BFPC) is only 0.73% shy to regain increasing trend but still recorded a significant volume of 1,662.28 MT. 

So far, PFDA RFPs have unloaded a total of 681,245.16 MT of fish since the implementation of the community quarantine in March 2020.
