PSA to conduct 2021 listing of marine fish landing centers

BUTUAN CITY -- The Philippine Statistics Authority - Regional Statistical Services Office XIII (PSA-RSSO XIII) is set to conduct the 2021 Listing of Marine Fish Landing Centers (LMFLC).


The 2021 LMFLC is a nationwide activity. It will cover all provinces with existing landing centers based on the current sampling frame used by the PSA. The activity will involve the listing and geotagging of commercial and municipal fisheries landing centers in the provinces. However, only landing centers that are currently operational or are temporarily closed will be geotagged and only operational landing centers will be visited for interview.

The activity aims to provide an updated list of landing centers throughout the country. Specifically, it aims to generate the sampling frame for the conduct of quarterly commercial and municipal fisheries surveys based on the following information: 1) Type of Landing Center; 2) Average Daily Unloading; 3) Peak Unloading Time and; 4) Peak and Lean Unloading Months.

The enumeration will be done using Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI). In this process, the enumerators will be working on a handheld tablet device to facilitate the interview using the following questionnaires converted into digital format:

1. LMFLC Form 1A – Commercial Landing Centers

2. LMFLC Form 1B – Municipal Landing Centers

3. LMFLC Form 2A – New Commercial Landing Centers

4. LMFLC Form 2B – New Municipal Landing Centers

5. LMFLC Form 3 – Landing Center Characteristics


During the conduct of the survey, hired enumerators will visit the existing marine fish landing centers that will do a face-to-face interview with the key informant (fisherfolk/officer of the fisherfolk organization/boat owner/operator/landing center official) using CAPI.

The hire enumerators are trained prior to field operation to ensure that the procedures and concepts are understood and to assure that they adhere to the prescribed COVID-19 safety protocols during the conduct of the interview.

In line with this, the PSA encourages everyone, especially the provinces with existing marine fish landing centers, to support and cooperate in the conduct of the 2021 Listing of Marine Fish Landing Centers. The data collection will be conducted on September 1-30, 2021. (PSA-Caraga/PIA-Caraga)
