Agriculture Minister says more attention needs to be paid to fisher folks; calls their livelihood 'risky business'
Three new boats and engines have been donated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Fisheries.
Agriculture Minister Reginald Austrie says the fishing industry is vital to the social and economic development of Dominica.
He says not only because of the revenues to be generated and earning but because of the health component that it brings to the people.
Austrie says despite recent weather challenges, fishermen were able to bring in notable supplies of fish into the country.
