The slump in fisheries has affected the performance of agriculture for 2011, with the overall growth inching to 2.34 percent. Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala said crops took the lead, growing by 4.82 percent on the strength of the good performance of palay and corn. Fisheries, which used to be a better performer from 2007 to 2010, slid by 4.1 percent as output for commercial and municipal fisheries declined by 16.3 percent and 2.9 percent, respectively.
