Praia, Oct 13 (Inforpress) – The General Fisheries Inspectorate, Maysa Rocheteau told Inforpress that the training course for inspectors in the sector, which starts today in Praia, aims to fill the existing needs in this area.
“This training for candidates from the Sotavento Region was to be carried out at the beginning of the year, but the COVID-19 epidemic forced us to postpone it”, explained the official, adding that the referred training course is part of the General Fisheries Inspectorate (IGP) activities.
According to her, the trainees will be part of the IGP inspectors, but she said that some of these future inspectors will also be took by other services, namely institutions such as fish processing factories and City Halls may be interested in having fisheries inspectors.
Twenty applications were opened for the Santiago Islands, Fogo, Brava and Maio, but according to the inspector general, two candidates from those islands dropped out and the IGP “was unable to replace them in time”.
