Fisheries and aquaculture are among the major sources of livelihood in Manila Bay. Commercial, municipal and artisanal fisheries are common in the Bay. Manila Bay, except areas near the ports, is a major fishing ground. Shellfisheries are common in the southern part of the NCR and Cavite. Aquaculture also abounds in Laguna Lake, as well as in inland areas in Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Pampanga and Tarlac.
