Fiji's Ministry of Fisheries and Forestry has not received any proposal regarding a fishing ban from the people of Nanuca in Cakaudrove, Vanua Levu.

Permanent Secretary for fisheries and forestry Inoke Wainiqolo told FijiLive he has not received any correspondence from the villagers to date.

“I have not received a letter from then and I am not sure whether they want a ban only in the village or in all fishing grounds in the whole of Cakaudrove,” said Wainiqolo.

“Until I receive a letter from them then we would be able to make a decision,” he said.

Tui Cakau Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu had earlier said the need for a fishing ban is due to the significant drop in fish stock in their coast and a ban would help them sustain their food supplies.
