Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi says the government will continue to support the development of sustainable fisheries by introducing reforms to ensure the preservation of fishing resources for present and future generations.
In a message on World Fisheries Day on November 21, Nyusi said out that these initiatives were designed to enable more Mozambicans to engage in productive fishing.
The date, celebrated under the motto “Sustainable Fishing, Base of Production Increase and Fish Productivity”, was, President Nyusi said, an occasion upon which everyone was called to reflect on the value of fishing as a promoter of the socio-economic development, particularly with regard to food and nutritional security.
“We will also continue to be firm in our commitment to encourage the practice of aquaculture as an alternative way of making fish available – a measure that contributes to the sustainability of this activity,” the president pointed out.
The head of state called on all sector operators, from small-scale to industrial fisheries, to associate themselves with the government’s commitment to measures ensuring an increase in fish production and productivity through responsible fishery practices.
“Let us make November 21 a time of celebration, and a demonstration of our commitment to responsible, environmentally sustainable fishing: a source of employment and income generation and collective wealth tending towards the economic and social well-being of Mozambicans,” the head of state’s address concludes.Source: AIM Moçambique
