Ministry confirms sufficient fish stock

SHAH ALAM: The current stock of fish supply of around 185,000 metric tonnes a month is expected to be sufficient during the total lockdown period, compared with the country’s estimated fish supply requirement of 155,000 metric tonnes a month.

Deputy Agriculture and Food Industries Minister II, Datuk Che Abdullah Mat Nawi, advised consumers not to worry or resort to panic buying because the supply of fish was sufficient.

“The Fisheries Development Authority of Malaysia (LKIM) has played an important role in ensuring adequate fish supply throughout the country, especially during the implementation of the movement control order,” he said in a statement after visiting the LKIM Kuala Selangor Complex and Sungai Yu Fishermen’s Market yesterday.

Che Abdullah also advised fishermen and visitors at the fishermen’s markets to adhere to the SOP set by the National Security Council, as well as to continue to adopt the new norms to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus. — Bernama
