Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) Regional Fish Ports (RFP) in Mindanao, also known as "The Land of Promise", fulfilled their promise of providing adequate and quality fish supply to all their clients and stakeholders after surpassing last week’s fish unloading record.

According to a centralized PFDA RFPs fish unloading report prepared by the Operations Services Department (OSD) and Public Information Division (PID), Mindanao RFPs, including General Santos Fish Port Complex (PFDA-GSFPC), Zamboanga Fish Port Complex (PFDA-ZFPC), and Davao Fish Port Complex (PFDA-DFPC), have registered a whopping 6,196.02 metric tons (MT) of unloaded fish supply during the May 1-6 period.

In comparison, this week's unloading record is significantly higher by almost 5% or equivalent to more than 250 MT over last week's volume.

Based on the report, PFDA-GSFPC maintained its position as the RFP with the highest unloading volume not only in Mindanao but across all PFDA RFPs with 6,094.83 MT of unloaded fish in six days. 

On the other hand, PFDA-ZFPC surpassed its record by registering 78.21 MT of unloaded fish.

In addition, PFDA-DFPC is determined to provide its stakeholders with sufficient and affordable fish supply and unloaded 22.98 MT of fish. 

Overall, Mindanao RFPs are continuously working their way up the ladder of sustainability by doubling their efforts to deliver adequate fish products to all their consumers. As they maintain high unloading volume, Mindanao RFPs are hoping to surpass last month’s record–– a promise they are eager to fulfill in the days to come.

PFDA Weekly Briefer for Weekly Fish Unloading from April 19 to 25, 2021

 

Following the effects brought by Typhoon Bising, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) Regional Fish Ports (RFP) still managed to unload a cumulative record of 8,688 MT, according to a two-week comparative report from the Operations Services Department (OSD).

Based on the report, PFDA RFPs have recorded a 24.11 percent decrease in this week’s fish unloading volume, the lowest weekly unloading record this month of April. This week’s decline is being linked to unfortunate sea conditions brought by the typhoon, forcing several fish species to move towards deeper waters and leaving fishing vessels with no other choice but to find safer locations to fish or dock.

From last week’s 5K MT unloading volume, the PFDA – General Santos Fish Port Complex (GSFPC) has registered 3,830.81 MT, still a significant volume considering the undesirable situations given by Bising.  

Meanwhile, PFDA – Navotas Fish Port Complex (NFPC) cannot steer clear from the extensive damages brought by the super typhoon but still managed to unload 3,633.76 MT of fish. 

On the other hand, PFDA – Davao Fish Port Complex celebrates as the only port with a positive output of 39.12 MT, a 46.33% increase from last week’s unloading volume. 

Despite this week’s volume drop, PFDA has already unloaded a total of 619,418.92 MT of fish since the community quarantine was implemented in March 2020.
