Fisheries production drops in Q1
MetadataShow full item record
Fisheries production in the country fell 3.03 percent in the first quarter due to lower output in all sub-sectors. Based on latest data from the Philippine Statistics Authority, commercial fisheries output declined three percent to 216,200 metric tons (MT) due to less fishing trips owing to rough seas brought about by weather disturbances that prevailed in Western Visayas. Municipal fisheries also saw a seven percent decline in production to 254,800 MT as frequent gale warnings related to northeast monsoon hampered several fishing operations.
