Angola and Argentina study cooperation in the fisheries sector.

A delegation from Angola led by the minister of Fisheries, Vitória Barros Neto is in Argentina for official contacts to enhance two-way cooperation in areas related to fisheries, aquaculture, construction of small fishing boats, fishing gear and cooling systems, according to the Argentinian media.

The Angolan delegation met with officials from the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of Argentina and travelled to Mar de la Plata to visit the National Institute of Research and Development of Fisheries (INIDEP).

The Argentinian representative, Javier Rodriguez said he hoped to be able to establish a fisheries agreement with Angola similar to the one Argentina has with China and the Republic of Korea.

Fishing is the third most important industry in Angola after oil and mining but 90 percent of fish caught is intended for domestic consumption.
