Nauru receives funding for fisheries projects

It has been given $US8 million which the secretary for the Department of Environmental Management and Agriculture Berilyn Jeremiah calls a milestone achievement for Nauru in terms of climate resilience.

Jeremiah said it would allow the island to solve issues in the coastal fisheries and aquaculture sector and improve food security, nutrition and ecosystem health.

The project components include strengthened policy and planning strategies, together with increased technical abilities of civil servants and communities through awareness raising campaigns.

The challenging marlin fishing competition dubbed the Minister's Cup was held from Monday November 13 to Saturday November 20.
