Region 10 fish production up by 9.51% in 1st semester

Among the three sectors, commercial fishing posted the biggest gain at 21.40%, aquaculture at 4.35% and municipal at 2.46%, respectively.

Also, an average of 3-4 metric tons a day was unloaded at the different landing centers in Sultan Naga Dimaporo, Lanao del Norte.
