[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Tuna Capital of The Philippines.
General Santos City

Tuna is among the 200 or so species of fish found in the country that have high commercial value. The Philippines ranks 7th among the top tuna producing countries in the world, both in terms of fresh/frozen tuna and canned tuna.

Despite this formidable ranking, the Philippines position in the international tuna industry leaves much room for improvement. The industry continues to be vulnerable to price fluctuations in the world market, stiff competition from existing and emerging tuna producing countries, trade discrimination in some importing countries, limited access to fishing grounds, increasing costs, and operational inefficiencies within the industry.

Thanks you for sharing


Taga South Cotabato ako Raul! Very nice shot! Nakakamiss tuloy ang tuna! :)



Hi Raul,
These tunas are great for grilling and are quite expensive where I live. Very informative Note. Indeed it is an important industry in the Philippines. A well captured photo. You can tell the tunas are fresh with their clear eyes. Best wishes.

Hi Raul,

Nice photo! When did you last visited GenSan? My wife used to work in the LandBank branch here in the fish port so this scene is familiar to me.
