MetadataShow full item record
Anda, Pangasinan—As authorities dismantled hundreds of fish pens in Laguna de Bay last month, “bangus” (milkfish) growers in Pangasinan province released fingerlings into empty cages at Kakiputan Channel here to prepare for the expected high demand for the fish. Laguna de Bay, which straddles the provinces of Rizal and Laguna and part of Metro Manila, produced 21,368.97 metric tons of bangus in 2015, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority’s (PSA) Fisheries Statistics of the Philippines.
