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.
