In the previous period (2017) the highland region reached 43 tons of the catch, according to the head of the department of fisheries and aquaculture , Alberto Sousa da Silva.

Alberto Sousa da Silva attributed this year’s drop to the lack of equipment.

According to him, the local fishermen had difficulties in acquiring nets, hooks and canoes.

He pointed out the Cunene, Keve, Kunhongãmua and Cutato rivers as having recorded the highest fishing activity in the region, of about 1468 artisanal fishermen.

On aquaculture, Alberto Sousa da Silva said that there are 18 breeders in the province of Huambo, stressing that the region is digging 50 fish ponds in Luvemba municipality in Bailundo municipality.
