The premix fuel station is equipped with modernised fuel pumps, storage tanks, and other safety features. These are to ensure the safe and efficient sale and distribution of fuel to fisher folks. This will make it easier for fishermen to obtain the high-quality fuel they need, which will enable them to sail farther and catch more fish.
Chairman of the Fishermen’s Council, Rady Botei, explained that this is a good initiative that will not only give them consistent access to high-quality fuel but also enhance the sustainability of the fishing business.
“We appreciate the Ministry of Fisheries’ commitment to making this initiative a reality as well as their support. We take pride in being a part of a community that puts fishermen’s welfare first and encourages our expansion and improvement,” he said.
Speaking to some fishermen at the seashore, they disclosed that despite the system’s current inefficiency, they are eagerly anticipating the day when it does begin to function so that they will be supplied with the premix fuel they need to keep their supply of fish in check.
