National Fishery and Aqua-Culture Authority, FAO to Construct Modern Fish Preservation Center in Sinoe
GREENVILLE, Sinoe County – In an effort to empower fish sellers and fishing communities in Sinoe, the National Fishery and Aqua-Culture Authority (NaFAA), in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Authority (FAO), is set to build a state-of-the-art fish conservation center in Greenville City.
During an interview with NaFAA Coordinator Andrew Doe on Friday, he explained that the project’s primary aim is to preserve fish caught by fishermen in the Atlantic Ocean. This will ensure a consistent supply of fish to various marketplaces in Sinoe County.
Mr. Doe also highlighted that the center will serve as a platform for exporting fish from Liberia to various parts of the world, particularly European countries. The remainder of the catch will be made available for sale in various local markets within Sinoe County.
Furthermore, Mr. Doe disclosed that representatives from seven counties, including Sinoe, Maryland, Grand Bassa, Margibi, Montserrado, Rivercess, and Grand Cape Mount, have recently concluded a three-day intensive workshop in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County. The workshop involved collaboration with officials from NaFAA and FAO to discuss the implementation of projects within the fishing communities along Liberia’s coastal belt.
