Citizens willing to sacrifice favourite fish

THE results of a recent survey show that 95 per cent of people in Suva are willing to give the kawakawa and donu fish a break from June through to September.

More than 2500 people under the 4FJ campaign movement have pledged not to eat, sell and catch kawakawa and donu during its breeding season so as to provide more fish in the long run.

SeaWeb Asia Pacific executive director Scott Radway said the campaign had received a positive response from communities and they were working with new partners to bring the campaigns to more areas in Fiji.

Mr Radway said the campaign had given people something simple they could do to ensure Fiji's future was brighter.

"People from all walks of life are stepping forward and making a statement that together we can make Fiji a better place and the response is beyond our expectations," he said.
