NFCPT takes fish to the people

Namibia Fish Consumption Trust (NFCT) toured Windhoek settlements and surrounding areas to create easier accessibility of fish to residents at an affordable price from Monday to Friday.

In an interview with Nampa here on Friday, NFCT marketing officer, Selma Moongo, said the target market is the residents of more remote areas as a result of their lowest priced fish as well as their lack of accessibility to fish.

The NFCT tour which sells Baby Hake, John Dory's, Jacopever, Redfish and mackerel as well as Mackerel, started in Dordabis then the group went on to Okahandja Park, Greenwell Matongo and 7de Laan in Otjomuise.

Moongo said the demand exists despite the saying 'Namibia is known as a meat nation' and during these tours in different regions you hear the cry of the nation for fish.

The fish sales in Khomas Region has not been great but the timing of the sales might have been to blame, admitted Moongo.

NFCT has been in the Oshikoto Region, Kavango West, Otjozondjupa and Omusati regions.
