Ratu Wiliame said it had not been an easy task protecting the qoliqoli area considering the poaching activities that had happened.
At the same time, he pleaded with resource owners to continue to abide by the laws that had banned the harvesting and trading of certain sea products, including turtles.
“We should always uphold the law and respect the laws put down by Government,” he said.
