João Lara Macuva Hotalala, who is expert on ecology of aquatic system, was speaking to Angop on Friday on the fishery activity done in the country.
He considered the activity in the country still insufficient in terms of sustainability.
The expert explained that any sustainable exploration of the fishery resources should be mainly based on the scientific research of the evolutionary and potential risk of the species, which is not the case of Angola.
Acknowledging the control work done to determine the times of catching fish and species, Hotalala defended more commitment by Ministry of Fisheries and the Sea to the research component.
According to him, the research will allow to create databases of the parasitological fauna of the fishery resources and estimate the age and the stages of growth of these resources for better exploration.
"Angola is one of the richest countries in fishing resources in the continent, but if the exploration fails to meet basic principles of sustainability, we seriously risk to lose these resources in the medium term," he warned.
