May 5, 2019 3:17 pm
The Fisheries Ministry is urging Fijians to help them in sustaining, protecting and growing our marine resources.
The Ministry with its partners will soon be commencing on awareness and outreach around inshore fish and crab species size limits.
The Set Size campaign focuses on developing a system of sustainable minimum size limits for inshore fish.
The ministry also recognizes the importance of ensuring people comply with the current fisheries rules and regulations to address and minimize any unsustainable harvesting practices.
A recent recruitment of additional dedicated frontline inshore fisheries compliance officers has now been completed and these officers will be commencing duties tomorrow to conduct targeted inspections.
The Ministry will take effective action against anyone found to be violating fisheries regulations.
