Monrovia, Liberia – The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority (NaFAA) in consultation with major fish importers in Liberia has reached an agreement to have a 2 United States dollars reduction in the prices of fish products.
The decision is part of efforts to ensuring continuous food security in Liberia.
NaFAA says the $2 US dollars reduction in the price of the below listed specific fish products that are mostly consumed by Liberians is intended to reduce the retail cost of fish on the market.
The products are Bonnie, Horse Markerel, Shinny Lady, Zipper and Snapper B and C.
A NaFAA release mandates all fish sellers or fish mongers in Liberia to take advantage of the new intervention by the government of Liberia and avoid any artificial increment in the prices of those fish products on the market.
NaFAA calls on the Liberia Marketing Association to take note and ensure that all marketers sell Bonnie, Horse Markerel, Shinny Lady, Zipper and Snapper B and C in line with the reduction agreed upon by the government and the various fish importers.
According to NaFAA, the US$2.00 reduction is now in full swing since Monday April 13, 2020, up to the end of the three weeks State of Emergency announced by the President.
