The Navotas Fish Port Complex (NFPC), the premier fish center of the Philippines and one of the largest in Asia, is the first major fishing port and fish market complex placed under the jurisdiction, control and supervision of the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA). It is a traditional landing place of commercial fishing boats operating in various fishing grounds in the Philippines. The construction of the Port Complex spanned three years from August 1973 to August 1976 through a Php 88 Million loan from the Asean Development Bank (ADB). It supplies fish and other aquatic products to major markets in Metro Manila. 

     The fish port is a business center with markets, ice plants and cold storage, fish processing facilities, canneries, shipbuilding and ship repair facilities, restaurants, fuel depot, gasoline stations and other facilities necessary for the fishery sector. Thousands of buyers visit the port daily where an estimated 15 commercial fishing vessels call port and unload a total volume of about 300 tons. Overland vehicles from different provinces also bring in additional volume of 50 tons.

     Located at the heart of Navotas in the Northeastern section of Manila Bay, NFPC can be reached direct from the Rizal Park via the Roxas Boulevard Extension (R-10) which will eventually be extended to Bataan. The circumferential road (C-3) coming from Sampaloc, Manila and passing through Caloocan City ends directly in front of the main exit gate of the fish port. NFPC, in fact, is centrally located within a five-kilometer radius of the cities of Manila, Quezon, Caloocan, Navotas and Malabon. It is only 10 minutes away from Divisoria, the country's premier bargain center
