MetadataShow full item record
Increased population of small fish species that serve as feed to larger species is increasing tuna supply in key production areas, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said. Alcala said more deliveries of frozen tuna for canneries are now being reported in landing centers in General Santos City where there is robust demand. The fisheries subsector grew by 1.8 percent in the third quarter, contributing 19.78 percent to total agricultural production. The subsector grossed P57.7 billion, up by 4.18 percent year-on-year.
