Paksiw na Biya, Nilingta ti Suka nga Bunog
Paksiw na Biya. Biya or Bunog is another fresh water fish in the goby family. This was once also in abundance in Laguna Lake howevre it is still in abundance in other rivers and lakes in the country. Biya is also as yummy as the ayungin. The fish is usually cooked with vinegar or crispy fried. They are also best cooked with coconut milk.
