QUARTERLY AQUACULTURE FISHERIES SURVEY


2ND QUARTER, 2016
NARRATIVE REPORT
REGION: IV-A CALABARZON
PROVINCE: BATANGAS
I.

GENERAL SITUATION
Overall production of Aquaculture increased by 8.75% compared to last years same
quarter. Brackishwater fishpond recorded an increase of 18.80% due to absence of white
spot/luminous bacteria and also due to the increase in area harvested cased by good salinity of
water. Freshwater fish cages also increased by 8.73% due to the increase in area harvested,
less mortality rate and good quality of water evident by the absence of sulfur.
Meanwhile, Seaweeds production decreases by 8.39% due to no production for
caulerpa. (Seedlings were melted due to hot weather condition during planting period.)

AQUACULTURE SPECIES SITUATION REPORT


1. P. VANNAMEI increase in harvest was due to absence of white spot/luminous bacteria,
increase in area harvested and good salinity of water.
2. MILKFISH (cages) decrease in production was due to decrease in area harvested,
stoppage in operation on milkfish and also due to shifting from Bangus to Tilapia.
3. TILAPIA increase in production was due to less mortality rate, proper time for feeding,
use of floating feeds and also due to the increase in area harvested.
4. COTTONII absence of ice-ice disease and availability of planting materials.
5. CAULERPA no harvest due to melting of seedlings during the planting and growing
stage.

QUARTERLY COMMERCIAL FISHERIES SURVEY

NARRATIVE REPORT
REGION: IV-A CALABARZON
PROVINCE: BATANGAS

I. GENERAL SITUATION
Production of Commercial Fisheries dropped by (19.61%) compared to last years
production. It was due to the decrease in number of fishing boats in operation particularly in the
landing center of Laiya Aplaya, San Juan (from 9 to 7 boats). While in Navotas and San Piro,
Balayan, resumption of operation was noted and they went fishing in Palawan waters.
II.

COMMERCIAL SPECIES SITUATION REPORT


1. ROUNDSCAD decrease in fish catch was due to less appearance and less number of
fishing boats catching these specie.
2. SKIPJACK resumption of some commercial fishing boats that was temporarily drydocked last year same quarter and additional unloading from Occidental Mindoro.
3. YELLOWFIN increase in fish catch due to additional catch from fishing boats that drydocked last year and now, they resume their fishing operation.
4. FRIGATE TUNA decrease in number of fishing days due to less fish catch.
5. INDIAN MACKEREL less number of fishing activity and less occurrence.
6. EASTERN LITTLE TUNA no date recorded on this type of specie.
7. FIMBRIATED SARDINES - no data gathered for this type of specie.
8. INDO PACIFIC MACKEREL less occurrence in the fishing area.
9. SQUID less fishing effort due to fewer occurrences.
10. BLUE CRAB no data recorded on this type of specie.
11. THREADFIN BREAM (BISUGO) frequent calm seas provided more fishing activity.
12. ANCHOVIES no data recorded on this type of specie during this quarter.
13. GROUPER no data recorded on this type of specie.
14. BIG EYED TUNA decrease in number of fishing days due to less fish catch.

QUARTERLY MUNICIPAL FISHERIES SURVEY


2ND QUARTER, 2016
NARRATIVE REPORT
REGION: IV-A CALABARZON
PROVINCE: BATANGAS

I.

GENERAL SITUATION

Production of Marine Municipal decreased by (27.40%) compared to last years same


quarter. The decline in production was due to less number of fishing days and fishing activities
caused by less occurrence of species. Fishermen were also affected by illegal fishing (dynamite
fishing) and over fishing. In Balayan Bay, some fishermen reported that they noted that
commercial fishing using Trawl were catching species on their fishing ground.

NARRATIVE REPORT
REGION: IV-A CALABARZON
PROVINCE: BATANGAS

I. GENERAL SITUATION
Production of Inland Municipal Fishing decreased by (35.20%) compared to the same
quarter last year. The decrease was due to less number of fishing activities and decrease in
number of fishing boats in operation caused by polluted water (digman grass from Taal Lake). It
was also affected by less number of fishing operations by fishermen using beach seine (pukot)
and also no production of freshwater crab (talangka) non occurrence during this quarter.
II. INLAND SPECIES SITUATION REPORT
1. MILKFISH increase due to good occurrence and more fish catch using gill net.
2. TILAPIA decrease in number of fishing trips and affected by polluted water.
3. FRESHWATER GOBY (BIYA) decrease in number of fishing days and strong current of
water that limits fishing activities.
4. MUDFISH (DALAG) increase in number of fishing activity due to good occurrence and
good price.
5. FRESHWATER GOBY (BIYA) less number of fishing trips due to strong current of
water and less fishing activity by fishermen using beach seine.
6. SILVER PERCH (AYUNGIN) good occurrence and increase number of fishing activity.
7. DUGONG less fish catch due to less days of fishing activity caused by water pollution.
8. ARROYO less volume recorded due to less number of fishing days and activities.
9. MALIPUTO No data recorded during the quarter.
