As we welcome a new quarter in 2021, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) is up and ready to provide its clients and stakeholders in the National Capital Region and some parts of Central and South Luzon with sufficient fish supply.

According to a special reportorial monitoring report collated by the PFDA - Operations Services Department and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), PFDA-NFPC has unloaded 3,557.91 metric tons (MT) of fish supply during the April 1-7 period. By far, this is the second highest weekly record since the joint monitoring effort between PFDA and BFAR amid the reimplementation of enhanced community quarantine in the National Capital Region and some nearby provinces.

Based on the record, galunggong (fresh) maintains its position as the number one fish species with the highest availability of supply, taking up almost half of the port’s volume for the week (1,687.96 MT). This is followed by tamban (742.72 MT), milkfish (522.88 MT), tilapia (160.20 MT), and dalagang-bukid (105.56 MT).

With a potential easement of the community quarantine in the following days, PFDA-NFPC is determined to maintain and improve this positive record. During this extraordinary time, PFDA-NFPC is seeing to it that there is enough supply of fish for its consumers.
