Fish pa more: Pangasinan being eyed as possible fish source for Metro Manila – Piñol

Jan 3, 2017 @ 17:56

Department of Agriculture (DA) and former North Cotabato governor Emmanuel “Manny” Piñol is eyeing Pangasinan as a possible supplier of fishery products to the Metropolis once the fish pens in Laguna De Bay are totally dismantled by next year

“To fill the big gap on the needs from the urban areas, Sual in the province of Pangasinan will definitely come into place because of its strategic location and its reputation for high quality produce,” the former politiko said.

“When you say Dagupan Bangus, people love it. Even foreigners look for it because it made its name not only here but also abroad,” the DA chief added.

Piñol also said there is a need to come up with a roadmap for the fisheries sector so that the government could provide the assistance it needs.
