The contest lasted for one hour where men and women participants showed their expertise in laying and drying fish.

The City Mayor and Vice Mayor also gamely participated in the individual tuyo laying contest, a sidelight of the contest proper.

The event aimed to showcase the production of tuyo or dried fish, and the different menu of serving tuyo.

The contest was one of the highlights of the month-long City fiesta activities.

GMA 7’s Unang Hirit a covered live the event.

“We are doing this contest for the whole world to know that we are producing the best and the tastiest tuyo, and that we are proud of it”, the Mayor said.

The Vice Mayor echoed the Mayor’s statement.

Tuyo/tinapa is Balanga City’s One Town One Product.

The City Agriculture Office said that Balanga has an average annual production of more than 14 metric tons of tuyo. More than 625 fishermen and 94 fish processors benefit from the tuyo industry in this City.
