Vanuatu fishermen face fines for outstanding fees

The warning appeal came from the Principal Monitoring control and Surveillance (MCS) Officer, Yakar Silas following a workshop on MCS on Coastal Fisheries.

Mr Silas appealed to all fishermen around the country to call into the Fisheries Department to sort out any outstanding dues they may have in paying or renewing their licenses to the Vanuatu Government. “Failure to comply with this notice,” he said will result in penalty fines.
