Navotas

Navotas

Navotas, Metro Manila is the city known to be the fishing capital of the Philippines. Most of its inhabitants depend on fishing as their source of livelihood. Even being a part of Metro Manila, Navotas City still remains to be predominantly supported by its fishing industry.

The city resides in a narrow strip along Manila Bay, making it a strategic location where vessels could land and they can trade their produce. Navotas’ source of livelihood includes fishing, net-mending, and fish providing for the market.

Under all of this, lies a very rich history. The people of Navotas played an active role in joining the revolutionary government of the Philippines’ first president, General Emilio Aguinaldo, which helped in building the foundations of this country.

And once upon a time, there wasn’t even a Navotas to know about. The entire stretch of land once belonged to Malabon, and after a few back and forths, it was finally declared an independent municipality in the early 1900s.

Navotas City is a place to go if you want to see what it has to offer and how the Philippines’ fishermen make their living. It continues to be one of the top contributors to the Philippine economy with over 70% of its population dedicated to the fishing industry.
