  • Visited the fish port for educational purposes. Kids had a really great time.
  • Learning experience at its best. All kinds of different fish and things
  • The whole complex is very clean including the three busy fish markets. Their guards at the toll gate are courteous and there is a ready PFDA staff available if you need assistance in touring the place, subject to a prior approved request to do so. Giant tuna can be seen unloaded every dawn from the numerous fishing vessels at Fish Market 1 and eventually graded, traded, packed and readied for shipment abroad or elsewhere in the country. The rest are bought by local seafood proessors and traders. It has passed both US FDA and EU standards so this should be the cleanest fish port in the Philippines. Visitors can do nothing less but to abide by its rules of cleanliness and orderliness. This is GenSan's #1 Tourist Attraction. Be sure to wear closed shoes, long pants when entering the premises. If you want to go inside Market 1, boots are provided by the PFDA office for a small amount.
  • Clean and passes the world standards. However persons with mobility problems are not advisable to come here because the floor is understandably slippery because of water spills from the fish , seawater, and ice. Wheelchair bound persons and assistant may enter the area but not too close on where they lay the tuna for danger of falling/slipping on the floor for both them and the tunas.
  • Great supply of fresh fish in the morning
