DILI, 19 july 2022 (TATOLI) – The Director General of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF), Acacio Guterres, informed that MAF has so far distributed integrated fishing gear to 1,300 fishing groups.

“MAF has distributed these facilities consisting of boats, nets, boat engines, cooler boxes to 1,300 groups of 5266 fishermen in 110 places in Timor-Leste,” MAF Director General Acacio Guterres told TATOLI in his office, Comoros, Dili on Tuesday.

He explained that apart from distributing integrated fishing gear to 1,300 fisherman groups, MAF also provided training to operate the gear.

“MAF also provides fishing training, maintenance training, and crew training to increase the knowledge of fishers in operating integrated fishing gear independently,” he said.

However, Guterres acknowledged that the support provided by MAF to fishing groups was not sufficient, so the government need to add more equipment and provide more training to support the activities of fishermen.

“There are several groups of fishermen who have not received the support of facilities and training from the MAF because the MAF has a limited annual budget, we hope this year we have sufficient budget to answer all the needs of Timorese fishers,”

With all the support provided by MAF, MAF believes that this will help fishers to improve the fishing industry in Timor-Leste while contributing to nutritious food and the country’s economic growth.
