“The development of the fisheries industry is similar to the land development. We need development in the industry so we can get many returns.

“The fisheries industry needs development.

“I work in the fisheries industry and I will remain here to advocate the need for development in this field.”

The Tavualevu villager from Tavua lives in Lautoka and was educated at Ratu Kadavulevu School and the University of the South Pacific.
