Speaking to the media, Mavis Hawa Koomson emphasized that fishermen have been adequately briefed ahead of this year’s operation.

“We have expanded it this year. We used to bring only a few executives but this time, we added some of the other members and the whole room was full so I believe the education has gone deeper than it has always been.

“Recently, I went to Sekondi and I told them about it and we are still sending them messages and I am also using this platform to inform them again that we should be used to the closed season by now since we know it is very beneficial to us.”
