Vietnamese fishermen eat snake for strength

 

> Vietnamese fishermen eat snake for strength
It appears that Vietnamese fishermen eat a type of snake every time they go to sea in order to ensure strength and enthusiasm at work. Local fisherman Khairuddin Mustapha, who has befriended many Vietnamese fishermen and exchanged stories with them, says he was told that the snake has nutritional value and also helps lessen hunger pangs. The 67-year-old has no information about the species but says he was once invited to savour the reptile. He however, rejected the offer saying it was not common for Malaysians.

 

> Malaysia could rely on 100% fish imports by 2019
Malaysia’s imports of fish and other seafood have been increasing at an average of 8% annually since 2011 and it is estimated that the country could possibly rely on 100% imports by 2019. Last year, the country imported 400,000 tonnes of fish and other seafood worth RM3bil despite local production output being 1.47mil tonnes and domestic demand only requiring 700,000 tonnes. The Fisheries Department is concerned that the statistic of fish production output might not accurately reflect market supply. The department’s director-general Datuk Ahmad Sabki Mahmood, said it is possible that some local fishermen had sold their catches to other countries but still make high output records to get fuel subsidy.
