As the NCR Plus eases to GCQ with heightened restrictions, PFDA-Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) managed to continue its positive unloading streak with 4,000.79 MT, a 1.33% increase compared to last week’s volume.
After experiencing a decline in the previous week, PFDA-Lucena Fish Port Complex (PFDA-LFPC) had a significant recovery with an 11.50% growth, equivalent to 398.07 MT.
In addition, PFDA-Iloilo Fish Port Complex (PFDA-IFPC) also obtained a positive record with 510.72 MT unloaded fish supply (1.10%).
In the meantime, PFDA-Davao Fish Port Complex registered a 1403.17% jump (125.06 MT) in its weekly fish unloading a week after being directly hit by Tropical Storm Crising.
PFDA-Sual Fish Port also recorded a two-fold increase (48.09 MT) in its weekly fish unloading.
On the other hand, PFDA-Bulan Fish Port Complex (PFDA-BFPC) almost reached a positive record but came short with a 0.07% decline. Nonetheless, the port was able to unload 1,674.55 MT of fish supply.
Although PFDA-General Santos Fish Port (PFDA-GSFPC) remains on the recovery stage since last week’s tropical storm, the port managed to unload 5,008.93 MT of fish.
