"The fisheries sector has everything to help diversify the national economy. For that we need investment in the fishing industry", she stressed.
Fernanda Guerra defendeu igualmente a necessidade de se apostar também na produção de ração para sustentar os projectos de criação de peixes de água doce, um processe que, no seu entender, deve passar de manual para mecanizado.
