Dalahican Fish Port

Located in Barangay Dalahican in Lucena City is what is probably Quezon province’s largest fish port built on reclaimed land from Tayabas Bay. This is the primary port where the fresh seafood catch from the Sibuyan Sea is delivered and from thereon distributed to many parts of Luzon.

The fish industry is so big in this area that they built a separate port half a kilometer to the northeast to serve as a terminal for the Roro and ferries in order not to have the transport and fishing industries disturb each other at this busy bay. The ferry port serves destinations like Marinduque, Mindoro, Romblon, and Masbate. A causeway was also built to connect the fish and ferry ports together.
