GIVEN the important task and responsibility of Fiji's Fisheries Department, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) eased the burden a little with the provision of about $63,000 worth of equipment for the department.

The equipment included five custom-made fibreglass spawning tanks, a sewage guide rail mount pump, shylon nets, diving gear, an underwater camera, a laptop and resource materials specifically for the Makogai Island Research Station library.

"I hope that this contribution from JICA will assist the Department of Fisheries in achieving its project purposes and overall, place Makogai as a frontrunner field research station," said resident representative JICA Fiji Shumon Yoshiara.

He made the comments at the handover at the Lami Fisheries Station last Friday.
