MARINE FISHES and MARINE INVERTEBRATES

The Philippines has one of the best varieties and most beautiful marine fishes in the world. It lies in the Coral Triangle (along with parts of Indonesia & New Guinea) which missed an ice age about 18,000 years ago. This fact explains why the Philippines has the richest species diversification in the world.

fishing boats along the beach

Our fishes are net caught by our net-trained fishermen all over the country.  We supply them with free nets and regularly replace old nets. We support our fishermen by lending them capital when needed to purchase additional equipment and to upgrade their fishing boats. Each community consists of several families. Fishing boats are shared among several families to maximize the usage.

Our fishermen are highly skilled and are able to catch fishes using nets. They are also knowledgeable in handling fishes so that these are proprely cared for on the way to our warehouse. There are shallow and deep divers. Shallow divers just hold their breath and dive underwater to catch fishes. Deep divers have scuba equipment to reach deeper areas and stay underwater for extended periods.

Our fishermen regularly bring in their catch to our warehouse. These are then conditioned by our expert staff for about a week, making sure the fishes are well acclimatized and healthy before shipping them out to assure the best possible quality fishes for our customers.
