Stakeholders of the fisheries industry were acknowledged for playing a vital role in protecting the Northern Division’s iqoliqoli.

During the public consultation at Lekutu, Bua, on Wednesday Commissioner Northern Division Jovesa Vocea, reminded the stakeholders on the importance of protecting their marine resources.

“The fisheries sector is important to our nation not only for the livelihood of our communities but the sector contribution to Fiji’s annual GDP,” he said.

“Last year, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama launched Fiji’s Green Growth Framework to accelerate integrated sustainable development that needs action at all levels.

“This framework highlights the importance of developing an integrated approach for sustainable development for Fiji’s resources.”

He urged the stakeholders to work with him and help increase the division’s participation in building the nations economy.
