Release of Baby Freshwater Prawn

The Department of Fisheries had organised a Baby Freshwater Prawn Release Program into Linggi River in October 2012. It was aimed to enhance lobster stocks which are dwindling due to uncontrolled fishing activities as well as misuse of equipment by the fishermen. A total of 110,000 baby lobsters were released by Assemblyman of Kuala Linggi, YB Datuk Ar Haji Ismail Haji Othman. The program was said to be in line with the establishment of the Kuala Linggi Rural Transformation Centre (RTC) that meets the blue ocean 4 strategy concept (National Blue Ocean Strategy). Residents will receive a positive impact resulted from the central and integrated services thereby boosts the economic activity of fishing itself. (KK17: 7 November 2012)
