In an effort to preserve marine resources within the qoliqoli grounds, the Fisheries Ministry has applied moratorium or a ban of fishing in these areas.

Fisheries Minister, Semi Koroilavesau while responding to a question posed by the Opposition member Viliame Gavoka this morning on how effective the moratorium is.

Koroilavesau says it is currently effective and was put in reserves by the traditional fishing right owners.

He says it has been effective due to the ability to legislate these areas and be protected by laws.

“These includes marine parts where they have protected reefs ,sea grass ,sea beds ,archaeological sites ,tug lagoons ,mud flats and mangrove areas.”

Koroilavesau says awareness was also raised to members of the community on the importance of this initiative
