With a fish sufficiency level of more than 200 percent, Pangasinan province could fill the fish production gap that would result from the demolition of fish pens in Laguna de Bay by 2018. The province has been supplying 140 metric tons of fish, mostly “bangus” (milkfish), to Metro Manila each day, which account for 60 percent of the total volume of fish being traded in the area, said Nestor Domenden, Ilocos region director of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. Without the bangus and tilapia from Laguna de Bay, Pangasinan’s share in the total fish volume traded in Metro Manila is expected to increase, Domenden said.
