Talisay, officially the Municipality of Talisay, is a 4th class municipality in the province of Camarines Norte, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 25,841 people.[3]

The fertile soil, gentle topography (averaging about 10 metres (33 ft) above sea-level) and suitable climate are the main reasons why agriculture is the economic backbone of the town. Rice and coconut farming are the major agricultural activities for most of the barangays and fishing is the second thriving industry particularly in the coastal barangays.

Talisayons have a deep concern for education. A family no matter how poor, sends their children to school. Talisay has a very long list of successful professionals in various fields such as medicine, law, engineering, architecture, education, law enforcement and military service, banking, business, sports, entertainment, marketing and many more. The incumbent mayor is Ronnie Magana and vice mayor Juancho Zantua Ramores.
