Malabon Private Fish Market

Called by residents as “consignacion,” this is actually a fish port and formally known as the Tañong Fish Market. It competes directly with the Navotas Fish Port which is government-owned while Malabon Fish Market is privately-owned. Here, the traditional, centuries-old way of trading fishes and other marine species, called the “Bulungan or whispers” is still being practiced today. This is one of the main sources of seafood that we see in different wet markets in the Metro and even some nearby provinces.

Aside from local markets that get their products here and sell in their own local places, there are some restaurants that also get supplies from here. More or less 107 fish brokers and fish dealers are here and starting capital is pretty big. Aside from fresh ones, there are also some frozen like salmon belly or heads, cream dory, pampano or pomfret, galunggong or hard-tail mackerel, tulingan, chabita or moonfish, hipon or shirmp.

The Fresh came directly from fishing boats are being unloaded and sold here, Palawan, Cavite, Mindoro, and so on. The system here is like constant trading, fishing boat owners are not strictly tide-up or exclusive to fish brokers/ dealers. Boat owners have the freedom where to give or distribute their freshly caught fish and alike and very commonly fish brokers/ dealers also get to purchase the items from Navotas Fish Port then sort them out and sell in Malabon Private Fish Port. That is why they were able to get more profit because they remove all the bad ones and sell the good ones.
