Fishing: Santiago will not evolve if it does not organize itself like the other islands – Minister of the Sea

Praia, November 29, 2022 (Inforpress) – The Minister of the Sea said this Monday that fishing in Santiago, where there are the largest number of fishermen and fishmongers, will not evolve if professionals are not organized in a network, as in other islands, such as São Vicente.

The minister made these statements today, in Cidade da Praia, where he met with all the artisanal fishing associations of Santiago, as part of the program for his visit to some fishing localities on the island, which takes place from the 27th to the 29th of this month.

On the occasion, Abraão Vicente suggested to the fishermen, fishmongers and ship-owners to build a network, as a way to be better organized and thus overcome the various challenges listed by the association leaders, giving the example of São Vicente where, when you need to talk to class, just contact the cooperative or the Fisheries Association.

“So, the island of Santiago, due to its size, with a greater number of semi-industrial boats, a greater number of artisanal fisheries, a greater number of fishermen and fishmongers, what we lack is to organize ourselves into a network”, he observed.
