Mozambique expects to export 14,000 tons of fish this year and has already reached 60 percent of that target, the government has announced.
“We are on the right track,” said Lucia Sumbana, director of the National Institute of Fish Inspection (INIP) quoted by state media today.
She was speaking on Tuesday on the sidelines of a United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) training session.
Sumbana highlighted the increase in fisheries inspection and “encouraging” aquaculture results as contributory factors.
The INIP director contrasted the expected 14,000 tons of exports this year with the 13,000 tons exported in 2013.
Mozambique has a fish export certificate for the European Union (EU), one of the largest destination markets, UNCTAD said during the training meeting.Source: Lusa
