“It is for this reason that we have agreed on the fishing institutions, fishermen and fisherwomen, farmers to understand the common problem that we have in order to improve. One, for example, is the sustainable use of resources like the lobster. As a result, the countries are working together to achieve developments in sustainable fishing of lobsters. This is a workshop that would allow us to take to the public the results from the work that we have been doing do improve the quality of life in each of our countries.”

 

The workshop continues and concludes on Wednesday.
