MetadataShow full item record
The country’s total volume of fisheries production reached 1.1 million metric tons during the second quarter this year, 1.36 percent lower than same period last year. Based on a report of Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), an attached agency of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the figure was pulled down by lower production in commercial and municipal fisheries, with only aquaculture managing to pull up its output. The PSA said commercial fisheries declined 11.89 percent due to less unloading of species in Navotas fishport brought about by frequent rains that hampered fishing operations in surrounding marine waters of Antique, Bataan, Zambales and Visayan Sea.
