The information was given last Friday to ANGOP by a section chief of the mentioned fisheries centre, Francisco Júnior.

He said the institution, which was inaugurated in 1986, needs urgent intervention to be able to provide the service that is now very much needed by this region’s fisheries operators.    

“The centre was inaugurated in 1986 and since that date it never again benefited from rehabilitation, (...) that is, all the equipment of the centre are obsolete”, he lamented.   

He went on to inform that the Fisheries Research Centre of Tombwa is equally in need of qualified cadres to respond to the concerns of fishing companies, since at the moment it only has two technicians.
