The Fisheries Division within the Ministry of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries said it will continue to provide training and other opportunities for local fisher-folk, as part of ongoing efforts to develop and sustain the fishing industry.

This assurance came from Chief Fisheries Officer, Jennifer Cruickshank-Howard, as she addressed Friday’s launch of the 2019 Fisherman’s Month of activities, which culminates on Fisherman’s Day-Whit Monday June 10th.

Mrs. Cruickshank-Howard said the Division will continue to deliver on its mandate to ensure the holistic development of the fisheries sector and the Ministry will also continue to seek partnerships aimed at providing opportunities for the enhancement of the fisheries sector.

This year’s fisherman’s day activities are being held under the theme “Climate Change affects the Ocean, Fish responsibly to sustain the Industry”.
