Local entrepreneurs and fishing industry urged to add value to their products
The Fisheries and Marine Resources Minister Derek Klazen has called on local entrepreneurs and the fishing industry to add value to all their products.
Klazen visited a polystyrene manufacturing plant in Walvis Bay.
The plant is owned by the Merlus Group of Companies, which invested about N$50 million to acquire the land.
Merlus is a fishing company that processes and exports fish to the European market.
20% of the fish is exported as fresh hake by flying it from Walvis Bay, where it arrives in Spain the next day.
