NZ Partnership with Vanuatu to support local Fishers

The Vanuatu Government has completed and will open its Fish Market in Port Vila on Friday 16 August 2019 at 11.30am.

The Government through the Departments of Fisheries and Industry and Cooperative have worked hard to ensure this facility and all equipment installed meets food safety standards.

While acknowledgment is also made to the assistance of Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) for completing the building structure, the Government would also like to acknowledge New Zealand support for the installation of stainless workbenches, shelving and other equipment and furniture to
enable completion of this Fish Market.

The fish market house provides an opportunity for market access to rural fishers and addresses seafood safety standards in Vanuatu. It also supports the flow of marine resources from rural to urban centers.
