Kota Kinabalu: The Sabah Fishery and Fishermen Development Corporation (Ko-Nelayan) always cooperates with the Royal Malaysian Police Force (PDRM) Sabah Contingent, especially in ensuring the safety of fishermen around waters off Sabah.

Its Chairman, Kong Soon Choi, said he is confident that with the cooperation fishermen and fish operators around the state would continue to be able to improve the state’s economy.

“Their preparedness allows fishermen and fish operators in cages to always be comfortable carrying out their work routine,” he said, after leading a delegation of Sabah Ko-Nelayan to pay a courtesy call on Sabah Police Commissioner, Datuk Jauteh Dikun, at the Sabah Contingent Police Headquarters.

Kong also welcomed participation from Sabah PDRM families who are interested in following fish farming courses including the preparation of fishery-based food products provided by Ko-Nelayan.

He said various useful benefits could be obtained by the participants, especially youths who just finished school because the agency has certain expertise in shrimp farming, including the manufacture of fishery-based food products.

“Our agency offers various courses to the youths to provide knowledge on fish and shrimp farming.

“This includes the preparation of food products based on the fishing industry. Therefore, I welcome the participation of youths, including interested PDRM families,” he said.

In addition, he also planned to hold a number of community programmes that focus on fishermen on the east coast and invite the PDRM as special guests to explain more about the current security issues.

He said the matter is important so that fishermen under the supervision of Ko-Nelayan could learn more about safety aspects in addition to avoiding any criminal misconduct.

“There is a group of fishermen registered under our agency who sometimes go astray carrying out fishing activities until they approach the border area.

“Therefore, the involvement of the PDRM is important to give them a security briefing so that they do not face any unwanted security issues,” he said.

Also participating in the courtesy visit were General Manager of Sabah Ko-Nelayan, Hj Yusof bin Ag Besar;  Fisheries Development Division Officer, Dahara binti Paro; and Fisheries Industry Development Division Officer, Burhan Japar.
