She also stated two advantages of fish farming in addition to the definition.
“It makes the farmer earn some income, it also increases fish for consumption in our community.”
Madam Hawa Koomson said she will find out about the number of regions where fishing goes on.
“If I’m right, there are four fishing regions in Ghana, If I’m wrong, I will find out when I get the nod, ” she said.
Hawa Koomson was the former Minister for Special Development Initiatives but President Akufo-Addo has decided to scrap the Ministry in his second term.
