TWENTY-FIVE personnel from the Ministry of Fisheries are part of a week-long training workshop at the Galoa Marine Hatchery on micro-algae in line with efforts to develop the aquaculture sector.

While officiating at the opening of the workshop earlier this week, deputy secretary for Fisheries Sanaila Naqali said the training was part of the ministry's focus to further develop the aquaculture sector, in particular mariculture, which included high-value species like pearl, shrimp, giant clams and sandfish.

Mr Naqali said the workshop continued the long collaboration between the ministry and the Pacific Community in the delivery of applied training workshops for national capacity building in aquaculture.
