Japan to provide grant for ice-making machines

Cabinet approved the Exchange of Notes and related documents with the Government of Japan for grant aid of approximately $10 million for a fish research vessel and ice-making machines.

In a statement, Acting Prime Minister Viliame Gavoka said that the fisheries infrastructure and capacity, align with broader bilateral cooperation efforts between Japan and Fiji.

Gavoka said the fish research vessel will be used to conduct fish stock assessments to evaluate the health of local fisheries, evaluate the marine environment for conservation and management purposes, provide training on various fishing techniques to enhance skills and promote sustainability, and serve as a collection point for fisheries products from fisherfolk, women, youth groups, and cooperatives.

The ice-making machines will be for the Labasa Fisheries Station to cater to the increase in demand for ice from fisherfolks in the Northern Division.
