Fish Be With You
Woke up early in the morning to witness one of General Santos City’s “unconventional” tourist destination - the Fishport!
The night before our planned visit, I’ve read a blog that visitors to the port can’t wear shorts , must take a foot bath and wear boots when in the premise. That made my boxer friend Masaya a little bit apprehensive, not that his feel smells bad (LOL) but because we don’t have boots.
We went anyway.
At the fishport administration office, we were provided with a pair of boots each for PhP30.00 and free cellophane as socks (your regular plastic pack, such a great invention).
By 6:00am the rush of people were all over. Tuna of all sizes and kinds were carried from the fishing vessels to the weighing platforms. The heaviest one I saw was about 98 kilograms and I’m not even sure if that was the biggest catch they’ve got today. Probably not.
Indeed, GenSan is living it’s title as the “Tuna Capital of the Philippines” with all this daily fresh catch. And oh yeah, this is a sushi and sashime perfect city too.
