By D. Ignatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, March 12 (LINA) - The administrative officer at the National Bureau of Fisheries, Ministry of Agriculture, James Dolo, has admonished those in the fishing industry to prioritize preservation in the processing of their catch.
He said it was regrettable that many Liberians involved in the fishing industry lack basic knowledge of the processing of fish.
Mr. Dolo made the statement Tuesday in Robertsport, when he addressed participants at an ongoing three-day training-of- trainers’ workshop, which gathered more than 17 participants.
He said during the workshop, participants will be trained on how to preserve fish to avoid selling rotten fish on the Liberian market.
Dolo observed that conducting constant workshops and seminars for those in the fishing industry will empower them to meet the required standard.
According to him, the objectives of the workshop are to sensitize men and women in the industry on how to produce and preserve fish.
He urged the participants to utilize the knowledge they will acquire from the training to improve their outputs.
