This year’s heaviest bangus (milkfish) weighing 5.6 kilograms, almost 20 times heavier than the average adult-sized fish, won for its owner P15,000 during the bangus rodeo of this year’s Bangus Festival. Bangus grower Alfie Flores won an additional P10,000 when another bangus from his pond measured 77.5 centimeters long, making it this year’s second-longest bangus. The longest bangus, owned by Flores’ brother, Alfonso, measured 80.5 cm, longer than the winner last year which was 76 cm long.
