A little tribute to our fisherfolk
Here's a little tidbit I found out: Fishing is a Php 50billion industry in the Philippines (that's roughly $1 billion) and makes up about 4% of our country's Gross National Product. Wow. If you ask any Filipino, the tastiest seafood comes from the Visayas region, especially in Roxas or Iloilo City (Visayas is an hour or so by plane from Manila). Fish, shrimp, crabs, you name it, they've got it.
