KOTA KINABALU: The monthly fish supply for the country this year is expected to remain stable at an average of 169,000 metric tonnes, compared to the national demand of 125,000 metric tonnes per month.

Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee said the fish stock therefore is expected to be sufficient to cater to the country’s needs despite various challenges to the fisheries sector during the Covid-19 pandemic.
