The municipal government of El Nido recently inaugurated a P3.5 million fish port project to make it easier for local fishermen to transfer their catch.

The newly-built fish port in the seaside village of Corong-Corong, according to town mayor Edna Gacot-Lim, will be useful in fish shipment and visitor arrivals.

“Malaking tulong at benepisyo ang maidudulot nito para sa pag-dispatch at arrival ng mga turista,” read the statement issued on the municipal government’s Facebook page.

The 69-meter port would also serve as an access point for fishing products to the El Nido Public Market.
