MALAITA fisheries is calling for support in its development plans for this year.
Principal fisheries officer for Malaita province Mr Martin Jasper said the fisheries department in Malaita province calls on the provincial government and the national ministry of fisheries to support Malaita’s fisheries plans.
“The Malaita provincial fisheries department wants to revive all the fisheries sub centres around Malaita province especially to improve the industry in our rural areas.”
He adds, the provincial head office in Auki is currently rundown due to the bad state of the building.
“The responsible authority should consider setting up a new building for the industry in the province for its development plans and purpose.”
Fisheries centres have been set up in parts of Malaita but have been rundown due to breakdown of machines there.
