SABAH, MALAYSIA - Production of fish seeds has been identified as the most crucial factor to the success of Sabah's aquaculture industry, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Yahya Hussin.

"No seeds mean no fish for fish culture. This eventualy will stunt the advancement of aquaculture," he said.

Yahya said this at the commemoration of memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Department of Fisheries Sabah (DOFS) and National Fisheries Research Development Institute (South Korea) (NFRDI), reported the news organisation, Bernama.

According to Bernama, he said the state government must adopt an immediate paradigm shift in accelerating sustainable fisheries development.

"These include creating clusters of high value-added, knowledge-intensive and technology-based counterparts to redress the lack of expertise, knowledge and experiences in fisheries research and development," he said.
