Fiji does good

FIJI, as a member country of the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA), has made a good impression on the agency, a representative said at a panel discussion on Thursday evening.

Hugh Walton, manager of the Devfish project for the FFA, said in terms of a proactive approach to the country's fisheries industry, Fiji was indeed doing a good job.

"Our role is to try and facilitate good fisheries management and sound fisheries development and in saying that, I would add that with all the FFA member countries, Fiji has been by far one of the most proactive and responsive countries that we work with," Mr Walton said.

He said while the country's efforts were encouraging, there was still more to be done in terms of clearing of the Suva Harbour.
