Agriculture & Fisheries Ministry announces a $3 Million Japanese Grant, for improving fisheries equipment. Officials say the grant aid project for Dominica is well on the way.
In November 2015, the Japanese and Dominican Governments signed a grant aid bilateral agreement for approximately EC $3 million for the improvement of refrigeration equipment at the Roseau and Marigot fisheries landing facilities, and fishing technology, through FADs.
Works to be undertaken include the installation of refrigeration equipment at the Roseau and Marigot facilities, procurement of a refrigeration truck, and the deployment of two mega sub-surface FADs.
Implementation of this project is said to be currently ongoing, and is expected to be completed by December 2016.
