The fisherfolks of Bulan, Sorsogon were already throwing sardinella or locally known as “Tamban”. The fishermen explained that the price of sardinella is too low due to oversupply of fish.

The price of tamban fish dropped from P700 down to P130 up to P200 only, which is quite low. The fisherfolks are already struggling to earn their capital and they are experiencing shortage of ice at the fish port, which be used for storage.

The residents were asking help from the local government unit to find a place where they can store the fishes. Some of them also asked help to bring the tons of tamban to the less-fortunate Filipinos needing food.
