Location of Dagupan City, Philippines
Dagupan City is located within the province of Pangasinan which is Region I in the island of Luzon.
- article from the city of dagupan:
Dagupan City in the Philippines, the acknowledged trading center in Northern Luzon is strategically located at the coastal ranges of Lingayen Gulf, making it accessible via land or sea.
Dagupan is traversed by seven rivers which stream into the gulf, hence making the city an aquaculture zone that produces seafoods delight and the best tasting milkfish (bangus) in the world.
The City’s wet marketplace which operates round the clock is bursting at the seams with its constant swirl of buying and selling of any array of products and commodities.
One fifth of the city’s total land area consist of fishponds where the delectable Bangus, prawns, crabs, and oysters are cultured and made available for consumers all year around.
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Academy, a pet-project of the House Speaker Jose De Venecia, Jr. boosted the city’s seafoods industry by promoting aquaculture technology.
The Jimmy L. Fernandez STADIA, established by business tycoon Belen Fernandez, is both a convention center and a trade exhibit hall. Today, it is the most recent testament of the city’s spiraling growth with an aggregate 6000 seating capacity, making it one of the biggest in the region.
For a city with short boundaries, the evolution of Dagupan from a small, coastal village to an upbeat metropolis is phenomenal.
History of Dagupan City, Philippines
- article from the city of Dagugan
The image of the weather-beaten, muscle-bound man of the sea, bronzed and almost nondescript in an old hat called tacoco, steering a sleek boat they called baloto in those days, had been classic Dagupenos bread winner when the Pangasinan waters were fish-laden and pristine.
Dagupan’s fame as trading post even before the coming of the Spaniards was inexorably tied with the sea, the marine resources that were lifeblood to the flourishing barter trade that drew intrepid seafarers who brought their valuable goods from across the seas.
Through the 300-years Spanish regime Dagupan’s commercial activities thrived, mainly pursued though the wide, swift moving communal waters that crisscrossed the early settlement.
Of the four major rivers of Dagupan, it was Pantal that carried the biggest commercial traffic and the lucrative culture of oysters, shrimps, Malaga and mollusks.
Pantal was staging point and means of navigation for the early fish-traders who heavily traded with the Kapampangans and Tagalogs of Nueva Ecija.
The early recorded effort to officially place Dagupan on the map showed Dagupan as a sitio of the Lingayen encomienda and later as a settlement town, Augustinian friars named Bacnotan. The name changed prompted a revolt led by Andres Malong, after which the term “Nandaragupan” became popular appellation, for it was in the old entreport (marketplace) “where the people met.”

Natural Resources of Dagupan City, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
