PIA Press Release

New investments in Davao Fish Port bared

by Prix D Banzon

Davao City (8 September) -- Two processing plants will soon open at the Davao City Fish Port Complex (DCFP) in Toril this City.

DCFPC Mario Malinao named the two plants as RYU and Aqua4 that process marine products for export to Japan.

He said the raw products that they use are the octopus or squid and when processed into canned products are named "cattle fish". They also use "galunggong" for the canned fish, he said.

He said the operations of the two new plants, the DCFPC will be housing six processing plants although he said that the other four plants that also processed tuna products source out their tuna requirements from General Santos City.

Malinao said there is a decline in the sashimi grade tuna unloaded at the DCFPC because the number of international vessels that call the DCFPC went lower even as he said that the imbalance is taken cared of by the increasing number local vessels that call the port and unload their catch.

As this developed he said the DCFPC cannot meet the requirement of supplying 3.5 percent metric tons of the total volume to the city's wet market.

But he said the need of the Davao consumers is supplied 60 to 70 percent by General Santos City.

He said unloading in General Santos City is between 200 to 400 metric tons daily compared to Davao with only 50 metric tons.

Malinao meanwhile reported that from January to August 2007, of the 1,307 MT of sashimi grade tuna unloaded at the DCFPC, 650 MT went to Japan while the rest went to Canda or the US.

He said instead of only shipping our tuna to Japan, the shipment of sashimi-grade tuna because of its popularity also goes to other foreign markets like US, Canada and China. (PIA XI) [top]
