Cordillera fish production up by 12 percent via aquaculture
by PIO release

Fish production in the region increased by 12.3 percent.

According to the Philippine Statistics Authority, from 2,154 metric tons in the first semester of 2017, production increased to 2,419.2MT metric tons during the same period last year.

The PSA attributes the increase to aquaculture.

Except for Kalinga and Mountain Province, the PSA said aquaculture fish production in most of the provinces in the Cordillera registered a positive performance.

Aquaculture production is a fishery operation involving all forms of raising and culturing of fish and other fishery species in fresh, brackish and marine water areas.

In the first semester of 2018, the PSA reported that the region registered an aquaculture production of 1,833.1 metric tons.

Ifugao posted the highest fish production with 1,309MT, followed by Benguet with 201.8M. Mountain Province had the least fish production in the region with only 5.5MT production.

In terms of percentage distribution in aquaculture production in the region, Ifugao contributed 71.4 percent, Benguet – 11 percent, Abra – 10.5 percent, Kalinga – 4.4 percent, and Apayao – 2.3 percent. Mountain Province has the smallest contribution with 0.3 percent.

Of the total regional fish production, 1,833.1MT or 75.8 percent came from the aquaculture sector and 586.1MT or 24.2 percent came from inland fishery production.

For the first semester of 2018, Ifugao was the top producer with 1,425MT accounting for 58.9 percent of the total regional fish production. Abra is second with 13.8 percent contribution, followed by Benguet with 11.1 percent, Kalinga with 9.2 percent, and Apayao with 6.7 percent. Mountain Province contributed the smallest share with an output of 7.1MT or 0.3 percent.

The report showed that the region’s municipal inland fishing output during the first semester last year was 586.1MT or 24.2 percent of the total fish production in the region.

Inland municipal fishing refers to fishing in lakes, rivers, and dams using simple gears and fishing boats, some of which are non-motorized with a capacity of less than three gross tons, or fishing that does not require the use of fishing boats.

Kalinga and Abra are the top inland fishing provinces with 140.8MT and 140.5MT harvested comprising 24.08 percent of the total inland fishery production of the region, followed by Apayao with 20.4 percent, and Ifugao with 19.8 percent. The provinces of Benguet and Mountain Province have the lowest contribution with 11.5 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively.
