Hatchery to distribute hatched fish to farmers

THE first batch of Malayan fish frys (recently hatched fish) from the new Caboni hatchery in Togovere, Ra will be distributed to fish farmers during a special program today.

Deputy Fisheries permanent secretary Sanaila Naqali will be present at the event, says Nadarivatu district officer Osea Ravukivuki.

He said the newly-commissioned fish hatchery would supply frys to fish farmers particularly those from Navai in Nadarivatu.

The occasion also celebrates the first harvest for fish farmers of Navai who netted closed to $1600 early this year from frys supplied by the Fisheries Department last year.

"This project has really been embraced by the villagers in Navai with the assistance of the Fisheries Department," said Mr Ravukivuki.

Senior West fisheries officer Pekata Toasi said the event also marked an important step for the project at Caboni, which had helped generate income for people in Ra, and Nadarivatu.

Mr Toasi said there were five ponds in operation in Navai.

The fish is sold throughout the district and has become one of the major income-generating activities for the past year.
