This follows issues encountered during this year’s open season.
Following the uplifting of the moratorium on beche-de-mer by Government, the National Fisheries Authority opened the harvesting season this April.
Coastal provinces grabbed the opportunity and raced out to fish for sea cucumbers, as they generate good money.
However, because of sustainability, NFA as the regulating body put in place Total Allowable Catch or TACs for each province.
According to the NFA managing director, John Kasu, all provinces have already reached their TACs.
