FORTY villages scattered over the districts of Dreketi, Sasa, and Mali in the province of Macuata will benefit from the work by the Mali District-based fish wardens to manage fishing activities around their waters.

Mali District Committee (MDC) chairman Savenaca Koliniwai said a memorandum of understanding (MOU) recently signed between them and World Wide Fund for Nature South Pacific ensured the continued sustainable management of Mali district's natural resources.

"The MOU would facilitate the continued protection and sustainable management of our qoliqoli, which is a source of livelihood for us," he said.

"The MOU signing process was also witnessed by partner organisation representatives, Department of Fisheries, Police Department and Fiji Community Development Program.This is an attempt to strengthen the ties of the local community to the departments that are key to the protection of the qoliqoli."

WWF South Pacific communications officer Theresa Fox said the MOU signing also included the handing over of various simple-to-handle hi-tech fish warden equipment to the MDC.
