Timely goal

THE Fisheries Department has signed on to a set of regional goals at the inaugural Pacific beche-de-mer and the future of coastal fisheries meeting on Denarau, Nadi.

It officially joins a chorus of other Pacific countries aiming to tighten regulations on these lucrative sources, following concerns on the exploitation of coastal fisheries and the beche-de-mer in the region.

Fisheries permanent secretary Inoke Wainiqolo said such a meeting was timely.

"We will have to take this up to Cabinet and move forward from the decision."

In a keynote address, Marshall Islands' Minister of Transport and Communications Thomas Heine said coastal fisheries was perhaps one of the significant sectors yet to be fully developed for many reasons.

"When we deal with the oceanic fisheries, it is easier because we tend to deal directly with industries and the resources," Mr Heine said.
