Local Fisheries Resources still cannot fulfil the Country’s Needs

On the question of whether the fisheries resources are already capable of fulfilling the country's needs, His Majesty says the answer is simple, the fisheries resources still cannot fulfil the country's needs. In fact the country's still depends much on the production of fish from the neighbouring countries. His Majesty adds local entrepreneurs are seen as unstable and on observing the Fish Landing Complex, Fisheries Department in Serasa, many fishing trawlers are controlled by locals but their production cannot compete with fish brought from outside.
