ACP Strategic Plan to boost St. Kitts-Nevis Fisheries Sector

Following the 3rd meeting of the ACP Ministers of Fisheries, held under the “Partnerships for sustainable development of the fisheries sector in ACP countries” theme, and where the Ministers from the ACP region discussed pressing issues pertaining to fisheries, the Saint Kitts and Nevis representative, Hon. Dr. Timothy Harris, stated that he expected his region to benefit from the strategies agreed upon in the discussions.
“This meeting should redound to the benefit of St. Kitts and Nevis and particularly our fishing community as the strategies provide a blueprint for cooperative action between member states of ACP. We intend to optimize opportunities for increasing the participation of staff and fisher folks in training with African, Caribbean and Pacific States”,  he told The Observer.
On a positive note,  he stressed that the Federation would be receiving technical assistance in aquaculture. Aquaculture or aqua farming involves cultivating of freshwater and saltwater populations of fish, crustaceans, molluscs and aquatic plants under controlled conditions as opposed to free range commercial fishing.
