Bangus price down to ₱30
MetadataShow full item record
A sudden oversupply of "Bangus" of milkfish has dropped the price from ₱110 a kilo to as low as ₱30 per kilo at the Magsaysay fish market in this city, yesterday. An estimated 100 tons of milkfish had to be harvested over the weekend from the fish ponds in the island villages of Pugaru, Bonuan, Boquig, and Salapingao and in Lucao, here due to the threat of typhoon "Lando." True enough, rains brought by the typhoon caused the overflowing of water from fish pens, necessitating the premature harvesting of milkfish.
