With the steady increase in the number of small to medium enterprises within the fisheries sector, the National Fisheries Authority has embarked on a program to train participants on how to process fisheries products in a more economical way.
In Port Moresby this week, a group of Fisheries SME operators are undergoing training on how to prepare their catch to ensure quality is maintained until it reaches their customers.
The training, facilitated at Ailan Seafood Limited, has enabled participants to get hands on experience on the practical skills needed in the different stages of preparation. Among these, the all-important stage of correct processing.
Upon completion of this week-long training, participants will then be able to go back to their operations, and train their colleagues – passing on vital knowledge – which in the long run is intended to benefits the fisheries industry.
The week-long training is one activity that the NFA is conducting in the lead up to the Inaugural Pacific Seafood & Technology Exposition, which Port Moresby will play host to in September.
