The Nationwide Fishing Ports Development Project (also called the Fishing Ports Project, Package II) is a major undertaking of the Philippine Government to establish the necessary network of facilities that will encourage higher and more efficient fish production in the country. The project involves development of commercial and municipal fishing port complexes in identified regional consumption centers. The project is part of the Integrated Fishery Development Plan, a component plan of the country’s 1992-1996 medium term economic development plan. This paper evaluates the government’s plan to implement the fishing port complex project in Cadiz City. The proponents of the project are the Philippine Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) and the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA), a government-owned and controlled corporation (GOCC) under the jurisdiction of the Department of Agriculture.
