The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority (NaFAA) announces to the public that its Taskforce will begin a vigorous awareness on the adjustments made in the Fishing License Fees for Fishermen engaged in semi-industrial fishing in Liberia.

NaFAA Taskforce comprising the Liberia National Coast Guard, Liberia National Police, and Liberia Immigration Service will be led by its Director General Mrs. Emma Metieh Glassco and it will tour fishing communities across Montserrado county.

The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority (NaFAA) Taskforce will be seen across fishing communities in Monrovia every Thursday and Friday.

Meanwhile, the Liberian Fisheries Authority wishes to advise that fishermen engaged in the changing of the canoes name without informing NaFAA is a crime.

Fishermen using one fishing license for more than two canoes is a crime. All unlicensed canoes will be chained and locked on the various beaches.

If a fisherman canoe or canoes do not have a number, the operators or owners of the canoe should immediately contact NaFAA through the local Co-Management Association (CMA) leadership through its president Nyanti Sleh on cell number 0776871987 for immediate action.

At the same time, NaFAA wishes to encourage all fishermen to obtain an identification card through the office of the local (CMA) located in the Borough of New Kru Town Administrative Building.

Said ID Card will put fishermen across the nine coastal counties in the position to receive free distribution of nets, motorize engines, and micro credit among many other fishing gears through the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority NaFAA.
