Fish supply is still a problem now and for the next
three (3) years.
The Philippines is registered as one of the biggest
purseining fleet and is treated in the tuna industry as
equal to the first world country catchers/processors.
But we really cannot compete with their capacities.
We continue to depend upon guidance and aid by
the EU countries to whom we owe our phenomenal
growth.
In truth, our capabilities have been taught to us by
our EU trading partners/friends
Our markets have been essentially the EU and the
USA, and we continue to receive help from the EU, in
particular, in terms of market, technology, financial
support if any.
