The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) will conduct the Quarterly Fisheries Survey. The survey aims to generate volume and value on Commercial Fisheries, Marine Municipal Fisheries, Inland Fisheries and Aquaculture production by species and by quarter at the national, regional and provincial level. The statistics generated through the conduct of these surveys will serve as input in the compilation of national accounts, researches and studies, estimation of performance of agriculture, policy making and program implementation on fisheries.
During the conduct of the survey, hired statistical researchers will visit sample fish landing centers for commercial and municipal fisheries as well as selected sample aqua farm operators and inland fishing households to generate fisheries outputs.
