The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR)-6 assured that supply of galunggong or round scad in the region is sufficient. BFAR-6 Regional Director Remia Aparri there is no need to import galunggong because of abundant alternatives. “Although ga-decline aton catch but we have other supplies of fish aside from galunggong especially sa Visayan Sea. We have species of sardines, mackerels na maka-fill in the gap sa production sang galunggong,” she explained. Recently, the Department of Agriculture (DA) announced that 17,000 metric tons of galunggong would be imported to stabilize prices and address the insufficient supply of fish in the wet market.
