Malayan frys for farmers

THE first batch of Malayan fish frys (recently hatched fish) from the new Caboni hatchery in Ra has been distributed to fish farmers around the West.

Deputy Fisheries permanent secretary Sanaila Naqali, who launched the event on Friday, said the set-up at Caboni was impressive and would be a catalyst towards the growth of the fish farming industry in the West.

Nadarivatu district officer Osea Ravukivuki, who was present to support farmers from Navai Village in the highlands, said fish farming had great income-generating potential for villages from the coast to the interior.

"This newly-commissioned fish hatchery will supply frys to fish farmers in the West, and I believe before long it will match the reputation set by the old Naduruloulou Station," said Mr Ravukivuki.

The occasion also recognised the first harvest for fish farmers of Navai who netted about $1600 early this year from the sale of mature Malayan fish to villages from Nadi to Ra.
