Tuna & Co. Fish Tour in GenSan Fish Port

I went to GenSan for the tuna, to learn more about it and somehow find a new sense of appreciation for it. The Soccsksargen EXperience (S3X Tour Tres) was a lot more than I expected. I couldn't quite keep up with all the exclusive sneak peeks of fishing, unloading, weighing, cleaning, sorting, freezing, packing, processing, selling and everything that I saw in a half morning. But it's no biggie. It's simply a case of fish and white boots overload in an off-limits place. We had to wake up early and go to the very busy General Santos Fish Port or we'll miss all the fun, wearing these boots for example.

I'm going to attempt to make this into a photo story post about my General Santos Fish Port experience.
