One business I feel more people should get into here is fish farming of popular fish like Lapu Lapu, Sea bass and the like. If I ever get enough time from building our electric trike business, I want to do this myself with some knowledgeable partners.
The other alternate market in Puerto Princesa, is called the San Jose New Market. It's an outdoor stall affair and they are open on the weekends, although there are now permanent stalls for native furniture, rice, dried fish etc. The vegetables though, are freshest from Friday through Sunday. It's off the National Highway and everyone knows where it is, ask any tricycle driver.
The fish and meat stalls are open all week, not just on weekends like the outdoor stalls and you can find vegetables all week long, not just on week ends anymore.
Some shelled capiz clams and seaweed called Lato. Really salty and the grape like pods pop in your mouth like caviar. Tradionally served plain and then dipped in native vinegar with onions and chiles if you like hot stuff.
|Sea Urchins.....not sure how they prepare them..the Uni in them seemed scrawny.|
They even eat sea shells here. I see these a lot at the New San Jose open market.
