Prices of fish in wet markets in Bacolod City continue to hike at least by P10 as more customers are abstaining from meat products in observance of the Holy Week.

Fish vendor Cardo Ramirez of the Pala-Pala Seafood Market said yesterday the prices went up, like gumaa from P150 to P160 per kilogram, lagaw P280 to P300, and bulao and bucaw-bucaw P160 to P180.

Tilapia prices also increased from P130 to P150, lawayan P120 to P150, abo P140 to P160, lison P150 to 280, bulgan P250 to P300, and tangugue P280 to P300.

Dominga Guion, fish vendor in Bacolod City Central Market, said the prices are not only affected by the meat abstinence of most Christian customers, but also of fishermen refraining from fishing because of the Holy Week.

Fish vendors also expect an increase in demand for fish products starting Maundy Thursday, she said.*KBC
