What is Tawilis?
Tawilis (scientific name Sardinella tawilis) is a breed of fish endemic to Taal Lake.
This small, tasty variety of fish is one of the unique breeds that evolved when the Taal Lake was boxed out from the entirety of the Balayan Bay due to the eruption of the Taal Volcano in the 1800s.
Tawilis is best harvested in the months of August to September for the calm winds and gentle waves make an ideal home for the breed.
