Malanje deemed great potential place for fish farming

Malanje - Although Malanje is not a coastal province, it has important water resources that can transform it into a pillar of fisheries practices and a centre of the country's continental fishing and, therefore, such idea calls for the establishment of loyal partnerships between the government and the local business community.

This assessment was made last Friday in the northern Malanje Province by the minister of Fisheries and the Sea, Victória de Barros Neto, during a meeting with the fishermen and fish farmers of the province, which aimed to study strategies to overcome the difficulties faced by them.

According to the minister, it is visible the communities' interest in the practice of fish farming, including women, which is a good indicator, but there is a need for partnerships between government, business and aquaculture cooperatives, to boost the sector and achieve self-sufficiency and reduction of fish imports.

Victória de Barros Neto considered it essential to create incentives for the emerging of fishing artefact stores and a feed factory, as well as the empowerment of a network of fish farmers through support for the acquisition of fingerlings to combat hunger and help to create jobs.
