CITIZENS URGED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES IN THE FISHERIES SECTOR

 

 

The PANOS Institute Southern Africa has encouraged rural communities to maximize on the opportunities presented by the aquaculture enterprise development project that the government is currently rolling out through the department of fisheries and the Citizens’ Economic Empowerment Commission.

 

The commission has announced that it is in the process of recruiting district aquaculture business extension officers to cover 30 Districts across the Country.   

 

The commission also said it is offering business loans for the establishment of commercial fish hatcheries and commercial fish nurseries.  

 

And PANOS Executive Director, Lillian Kiefer says this will boost efforts to revive the fisheries sector that has in recent years been hard hit by the effects of climate change and unsustainable practices, resulting in massive depletion of fish stocks.
