This was an increase over the previous years, said association president Sylvester Pokajam, who urged the National Fisheries Association to do more to enhance the industry towards increasing generated revenue.
 
"The overall fishing industry, from the export earnings that come back, we would be looking at K1.5 billion annually," he said.
 
Pokajam said this was because of progressive development with more vessels and more consumers in the market.
 
"This is why we have to look after the industry and allow it to grow to fully maximise opportunities that it provides," he said.
