General Santos City, which was previously known as Dadiangas and is now popularly known as GenSan, is the southernmost city in Mindanao. It is the center for commerce and industry of Region XII or SOCCSKSARGEN, the acronym of four provinces and a city – South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos City. Neptune must have plunged his trident deep into the seas in this region as it now produces the largest amount of sashimi-grade tuna in the country, giving GenSan the bragging rights to the tag, “Tuna Capital of the Philippines.”
