Cebu fish prices up 50%
MetadataShow full item record
Fish traders and consumers alike are complaining about the sudden increase in the wholesale and retail prices of fish and other seafood. In a visit to several markets in Cebu City, the Manila Bulletin learned that bad weather is to blame for the low supply and higher prices of all popular fish varieties. Malou Baguio, fish vendor from Pasil Fish Port, explained that most of the fish sold in Cebu come from other towns and islands and have to be transported by boat. With stormy weather prevailing, some of the boats do not go out to sea thereby affecting the quantity and price of supply.
