The Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture, Zaha Waheed has highlighted the concerns of the Fishing Industry in the Maldives. She stated that some of the primary concerns of Maldivian fishermen include inconveniences in weighing fish and the lack of ice to keep the fish in fresh conditions.

After making official visits to the southern atolls, the Minister has clarified in an interview that the reasons for the visit were to listen to the concerns of the fishermen of Maldives and working to find solutions to difficulties faced in their work.

The Minister further stated that an ice plant with a daily capacity of 100 tonnes of ice will be opened in Hulhumeedhoo, Addu City within the span of two weeks. She emphasized that this will bring about a significant improvement in obtaining ice for the fishermen working in the area. As of right now, there are ice plants installed in all the atolls of the Maldives.
