Senior Fisheries Officer, Norman Norris, says the Fisheries Division continues to promote fisheries and fishing as a viable occupation through its various programs.
Dominica joined the rest of the world in observing World Fisheries Day on Monday, under the local theme 'Act responsibly- Let us create a sustainable fishing industry'.
Meanwhile, there have been concerns of overfishing worldwide, and while Norris says there have been cases where fishermen have reported no longer seeing certain species of fish, this could be as a result of land based sources of pollution.
Overfishing has been described as a form of overexploitation where fish stocks are reduced to below acceptable levels.
