Observe fish ban, appeals Mongu resident
By Staff Reporter
A fish trader in Mongu district has called on fellow residents to observe the annual fish ban.
On December 1, the government enforces an annual three month fish ban in most major water bodies.
Francis Mubita told Newsday Zambia in an interview this morning that both fishmongers and the community at large should desist from harvesting fish when the ban was effected.
“Fishermen have a trend of practicing the use of illegal fishing methods such as mosquito nets and poisonous substances,” said Mubita.
“Fishermen should consider methods of preserving fish stocks.”
