The information comes on an assessment report from Cuanza Sul’s fisheries department, in which it is explained that the substantial reduction in production is due to the heavy rains registered from February to April and between October to December last year, as well as the obsolete materials used by the producers.


The document states that the demand for salt in the local market is gradually increasing due to the fall in production.


The Porto Amboim Municipality has three main salt production plants, namely Barbas, Rui Teixeira and Ngola Kiluange.
