Fisheries Minister Gives Commitment to Sector Stakeholders

first_img Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Government is committed to creating an enabling environment which fosters growth and sustainability within the fisheries sector.Speaking at a Sustainable Fisheries Forum, held at the Sandals Ochi Beach Resort, St. Ann, on Thursday, April 19, Mr. Shaw said this will be achieved by creating an environment where there is a balance for all stakeholders involved in both marine and aquaculture fisheries.“As we seek to work together to develop the fisheries industry, it is important that through the use of application of the best available scientific information, we monitor, assess and evaluate the industry,” he outlined.He said several important steps have been taken to ensure the sustainability of the industry, such as the expansion of fish sanctuaries; the adoption of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture policy; the establishment of a fisheries management and development fund; and improvement in the surveillance of Jamaica’s waters.The Minister also pointed out that the new Fisheries Bill will be implemented in short order.“This Bill will modernise the management of the fisheries sector, bringing it in line with international management and conservation measures… that [will] ultimately [become] a part of the solution and the framework for the management of resources in all its facets,” he said.Mr. Shaw said the industry continues to face challenges with the management and use of fisheries resources, the development of the aquaculture subsector, non-compliance of primary stakeholders, climate change, disaster risk management, institutional strengthening and resource mobilisation.In this regard, he encouraged the stakeholders to accept the realities of the environment and to strike a compromise by beginning to change the cultural practices towards dealing with the different challenges.“We have to demonstrate the vision to look beyond tomorrow…simple things like taking your fish pots and making them larger, agreeing to the fish pots having larger holes, so that the small fish can escape and go on to grow and to thrive, and protecting the reef,” he said.
