A Hiligaynon term for fishing, Pangisda pays tribute to the fishermen who braved strong waves, endured the heat and cold winds just to provide food for the family and the community as well. It started initially with street dancing depicting the activities of fishing industry. Special events include BanKarera, Paindis-indis puna lambat (repair of fishing nets); Paindis-indis Pakas-isda (fish preparation); Paindis-indis Bulad Tabagak sa Kapil (drying); Paindis-indis fish Pakas-Danggit (deboning of “Danggit”); Paindis-indis Lala Bayuyot (basket weaving); Paindis-indis Tilang Ticab-ticab (shell muscle picking) and Seafoods Cookfest which are participated by the resident from all barangays of the municipality.
