MetadataShow full item record
Majority of Filipinos believed fish and seafood products available in markets have become smaller, and more expensive, and that there is less variety compared to a decade ago, an independent pollster said Thursday. A Social Weather Stations survey, commissioned by Oceana Philippines, found that five out of 10 Filipinos believed that catch from the seas has shrunken. The SWS also found that some 87 percent of those polled said that fish and seafood products are now more expensive compared to a decade ago.
