Ice plant installed

FISHERMEN in Lekutu and the neighbouring islands can breathe a sigh of relief now that the Fisheries Department has installed an ice plant in the area.

In October last year, the department had initially planned to build a well-structured facility to help fishermen in the area.

Principal fisheries officer Northern Joji Vakawaletabua yesterday said fishermen didn't have to fork out extra money to travel all the way to Nabouwalu or Labasa to buy ice.

"This is because they have an ice plant in the area," Mr Vakawaletabua said.

"The plant is very important because it will assist fishermen with their ice supply.

"Ice helps in fish preservation and it maintains the quality of fish."
