I want to see the tuna fisherman returning from sea, and unloading their boats. Actually, I do not know what I want to see, I want to know how a tuna gets from the ocean to the shore.

Tuna Fishing boat, just a walk towards the water from the Public Market of the city of General Santos, Philippines.

I talked to a girl, she works in a processing plant for tuna, she said it was owned by a Japanese person and employed about 500 people. She earns about 213 Pesos per day for eight hours of work; this is about 4.5 US dollars per day. She is going to text message me on my cell phone later today, she will talk to her boss and see if it is ok for me to go the plant and take photos.
