Traditional fishermen get better facilities

The Fishery and Maritime Affairs Ministry presented assistance packages to traditional fishermen in a couple of areas in Bali as part of a national program to provide fishermen with better facilities.

The cash will be disbursed to 14 fishermen’s groups called KUB (fishermen’s joint enterprise group), with each receiving Rp 100 million. Eight other groups, which handle the processing and distribution of fish, will get Rp 400 million, while five groups that handle fish cultivation will get Rp 500 million. The assistance is aimed at providing capital for fishermen to be more productive and help them improve their entrepreneurship. The groups will also receive technical assistance from officers of the fishery and maritime affairs agency in Bali.
