Coastal fisheries division to be established

September 15, 2015 7:13 pm

The Fisheries Ministry has endorsed the initial planning and discussion process to establish a Coastal Fisheries Management division in the country.

This is to help respond to emerging issues evolving within the fisheries sector.

Permanent Secretary for Fisheries and Forest Inoke Wainiqolo made this statement at the Coastal Fisheries Monitor and Surveillance Workshop in Colo I Suva.

Wainiqolo says this is the first ever workshop held in Fiji to educate fisheries officers to address specific issues on coastal and inshore fishing.

“Our core regulatory role is the administration and management of Fiji laws and in relation to this workshop, the fisheries Act and its subsidiary legislations. Whilst you strive to enhance your skill in MCS activities, it is important to understand the links between why and who we are managing our coastal fisheries resources for.”

Wainiqolo also reminded fisheries officers of their role in serving the people and protecting traditional fishing ground.

The four days workshop will also help the Fisheries Department to pro-actively engage and ensure long term sustainability of the Coastal Fisheries resources for the benefit of the people.
