The plan, which includes input from key stakeholders, is the result of the policy review and strategic planning of the Central Government, the MAG through the Directorate General of Fisheries and Aquaculture and the National Policy on Fisheries and Aquaculture.
The plan was also developed with participation of those working in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors, allowing for the identification of issues affecting the sectors and what possible actions could be introduced to solve them.
In implementing the plan, the objective is to promote the growth and development of the economic, social, tourism and environmental aspects of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. ■
