Fishers group urges boycott of imported galunggong
MetadataShow full item record
A group of fishermen yesterday vowed to campaign for a nationwide boycott of imported galunggong (round scad), insisting that while the imports are expected to cost less than local harvest, they are a health hazard. “We urge local vendors, consumers and fishers not to patronize the imported products as they are health hazards and are surely of poor quality. Instead, we will promote locally caught marine and aquatic products, which are not only good in quality but will also help boost the local fishing industry,” said Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya). The group contradicted the claims of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources that galunggong to be imported are “low in formaldehyde.”
