Fish supply back to normal

PETALING JAYA: Fish supply in the country will be back to normal this month, says Deputy Agriculture and Food Industries Minister 1, Datuk Seri Ahmad Hamzah.

He said the increase in supply was expected to continue until it reaches its peak in October.

“Fish supply is seasonal every year and the unpredictable weather patterns has an effect on the country’s fish supply,” Sinar Harian quoted him as saying after opening ‘Pesta Okid, Flora dan Herba 2022’ at the Rural Transfomation Centre in Tunjung, Kota Bahru on Friday (June 4).

Ahmad said fishermen could not go out to sea for fishing activities because of this.

However he said presently the stock of fish supply in the country was sufficient for the needs of the people.

He also said that food security had become a hot debate among the public but assured that the government always monitors the situation to ensure food supply in the country is adequate.
