Barangay Suba was founded by their indomitable teniente del barrio (popularly known now as Barangay Chairman) Ingko Oloy Eulogio Dagondon on 1888. The name was said to be derived from the flowing water coming from the swampy area to the open sea. Old folks called it in their native twang “suba” which brings a lot of fishes of different kinds from the sea. The people were pleased because it made them easier to catch fish and made it available to their daily consumption.
Barangay Suba has been reputed as Anda’s Fish Country because majority of the residents are engaged in fishing and other related fishing activities. Today, that swampy area is now transformed into a huge fish pond that locals could enjoy luscious and fresh tilapia, bangus, among others.
