THE Kedah Integrated Fishery Terminal project will be revived in a move to turn it into one of the major tuna landing centres in the country.

Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir said the project would be sited in Kuala Kedah, Langkawi, and would also have a dock for large deepsea fishing vessels.

It will be named the Kedah-LHF Integrated Agro Fisheries Development (KIFD).

“KIFD will become the biggest nucleus in the region in the fish supply chain sourced from the Indian Ocean and surrounding areas,” he told reporters recently.

Earlier, he visited six tuna fishing vessels belonging to Luhaifeng Holdings (M) Sendirian Berhad (LHF) which berthed at the Tanjung Lembung Harbour.

Mukhriz said several large development projects announced by the Barisan Nasional government in Kedah prior to this would be continued after implementation costs and benefits to the people were reviewed.

He said the review would include the importance of the projects in boosting tourism services on the island. — Bernama
