     Table 1 displays the volume of production in metric tons in each subsector and the percent change from the 3rd quarter of 2018 to the 3rd quarter of 2019. Municipal Fisheries showed the highest increase with 13.43 percent change in its volume of production while Commercial Fisheries showed the least increase of 7.77 percent.

 

 

During the reference period, 58.99 percent of the province’s fish production came from Municipal Fisheries, 24.89 percent from Aquaculture, and 16.13 percent from Commercial Fisheries (Figure 2)

 

Municipal Fisheries production soared to 1,435.66 metric tons or by 13.43 percent

    Within the reference quarter of 2019, the total volume of production of Municipal Fisheries turned up by 13.43 percent from 1,265.63 metric tons in 2018 to 1,435.66 metric tons in 2019. This is a joint record in volume of production from the Marine Municipal and Inland Municipal Fisheries.

     

    Of the total production in Municipal Fisheries, Marine Municipal Fisheries contributed 99.85 percent while Inland Municipal Fisheries contributed 0.15 percent. (Figure 3)

 

 

     Marine Municipal Fisheries showed an increment in production from, 1,250.53 metric tons in 2018 to 1,433.52 metric tons in 2019. This is attributable to favorable fishing weather condition which increased the appearance of schools of fish. However, the volume of production in Inland fisheries declined from 15.10 metric tons in 2018 to 2.14 metric tons in 2019 mainly caused by the shifting of work of inland fishermen to construction labor and farming

 

 

    Aquaculture production registered an increase of 7.88 percent for the third quarter of 2019

 

    Compared to last year of the same quarter, the volume of production in Aquaculture in 2019 was recorded at 605.71 metric tons, an increase of 7.88 percent from 561.48 metric tons in 2018. The upsurge in the number of Bangus, Lito Praeus Vanamei and Tiger Prawn produced resulted to the rise of Aquaculture production during the reference period. 

 

 

    Commercial Fisheries yielded 392.57 metric tons of fish or a growth of 7.77 percent in the third quarter of 2019

    The volume of production in Commercial Fisheries increased from 364.27 metric tons in the same quarter of 2018 to 392.57 metric tons in 2019. This is a combined Volume of Production between the Traditional and LGU-managed Landing Centers. Among the three sub-sectors, Commercial Fisheries showed the slowest growth at only 7.77 percent during the reference period. (Figure 6)
