KUALA TERENGGANU - The Te-rengganu Fishermens Association (Penentu) will request RM5mil from the state government and the Fisheries Develop-ment Board to carry out aquaculture projects for the benefit of the fishing community in the state.

Penentu manager Johari Mohd Nor said the projects would provide supplementary income for fishermen as well as their their family members.

“The projects, like rearing of carps in cages, yield good returns because of the high demand and they fetch good prices. Fishermen can also rear clams,” he said.
