“Galunggong” (GG for short) known as poor man’s fish is now being imported from China and Taiwan. This fish having the price of P80.00 per kg. is cheaper compared to the local GGs which can be bought at the price of P100.00 per kg. Since the price is more affordable in comparison with the local fishes, consumers will prefer to buy the imported ones. And our local fishermen will suffer from this trade.

Instead of allowing the entry of imported fish, the government should provide subsidies to the fishermen, they said. Because if these were not given and the importation cannot be stopped, then they would completely lose their livelihood.
