“Galunggong,” or round scad, once considered the poor man’s fish, is now among the marine products the Philippines is importing.

Part of the country’s galunggong supply now comes from either China or Taiwan, according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR).
Fish accounts for 80 percent of the animal protein intake of Filipinos, who each eat 28 kilos of fish annually.

BFAR Director Asis Perez said the agency and the Department of Agriculture were compelled to open the domestic market to imported fish because of the declining fish catch.

Romans 8:38-39
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

During my 1st year of medical school, my friend Job and I would go to the local asian super market and buy gulonggong and pinirito it. It was our favorite food for the weekend kai barato and lami ang taste. Job, who is from Lucena, Luzon, would always say, "Sarap na Sarap yan, pareng Lorenz!"

Ah, it was our source of sustenance for many weekends. We would eat gulonggong with rice and have a bowl of soy sauce and lemon juice. Luoy pod intawn.

It wasn't "Poor man's fish" we both called it "Poor medical student's food" lol!
