‘Give Small Fisher Folk a Chance!’ – Samuda

Government Senator Matthew Samuda is calling on the authorities to urgently explore the implementation of measures to give small and medium-sized fisherfolk a better chance of competing with their regional and international counterparts.

He says providing more cost-effective access to fuel and storage facilities are two options.

Senator Samuda says the best opportunity should be given to fisherfolk in Jamaica to achieve economic prosperity.

Senator Samuda was making his contribution to debate in the Senate on a bill which proposes to amend the Fisheries Act.
