MetadataShow full item record
Agriculture and fishery production grew 1.15 percent year-on-year in 2013, slower than the 2.9-percent expansion in 2012, as the country suffered from several natural calamities that damaged billions of peso worth of crops last year. The poultry and livestock subsector grew by 4.20 and 1.75 percent, respectively, while the fisheries sector rebounded with a 1.23-percent growth in 2013. The growth in the fishery sector in 2013 was attributed to higher production of roundscad, milkfish, tilapia and yellowfin tuna.
