Yesterday, November 5, 2009, ABS-CBN’S BANDILA featured a news report by its sporstcaster/correspondent Dyan Castillejo at the General Santos City Fishport Development Complex, or simply GenSan Fishport. The report was headlined, “GIANT TUNA” and introduced by anchor Henry Omaga-Diaz.
The report gives us a quick and amusing look on the unloading of these giant tuna (30 kgs-70kgs up) from the handline fishing boats which have just arrived from their 2-month expedition on the high seas.
Special focus was given on the men whose work is to carry each tuna individually on their shoulders and deliver them inside Market One where it is weighed, graded, traded and prepared for shipment or delivery to the tuna processors inside the GenSan Fishport Complex.
Dyan Castillejo even gamely tried to carry one giant tuna from one of the handline vessels like these men do. Did she succeed? Watch this video to find out. (Source: ABSCBN News.)
