FISHERMEN from Lokia in Nausori met Fisheries Department officials in a consultation workshop on Friday.

The workshop was held to reinforce the regulations on fishing licences and create awareness of sustainable management of fisheries resources.

Senior Fisheries Officer Mere Lakeba said the workshop provided a platform for fisheries officers to share information with registered fishermen on the species of fish that were now endangered, what to do when faced with a mishap out at sea, who to contact when they had complaints on activities that they deem illegal and on sharing licences which was not supposed to be happening.
