Authorities call for intensified patrols on Luapula River

Zambian or Congolese authorities have called for increased patrols on the Luapula River during the fish ban period.

Authorities resolved that illegal fishermen are apprehended by patrol teams should be surrendered to their respective countries together with all confiscated items.

In addition, patrol teams from both countries are to meet every two weeks to update themselves on various issues concerning the fish ban.

Geoffrey Chipampata, Mwense District Commissioner said lack of funding is hampering the fisheries officers from Mwense to carry out the patrols effectively.

He said the fisheries officers in the district have not carried out any patrol since the inception of the fish ban due to lack of resources.

Aridja Shomali,Kasenga District Assistant territorial administrator from Democratic Republic of Congo also called for preventive measures for illegal fishermen during the fish ban period.
