Potential in sea and river fishing tourism
“With increased tourism facilities, coupled with the increase of international flights from famous Asian countries such as Shanghai, Singapore, Manila, Taipei, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Beijing, Hangzhou and Jakarta, Sabah’s economy will be given a further boost,” Kong said. - Bernama pic for illustration only.
Kota Kinabalu: Sabah needs more tourism centres with sea and river fishing facilities to attract domestic and foreign tourists, said Kong Soon Choi.

The Chairman of Sabah Fisheries and Fishermen Development Corporation (Ko-Nelayan) said half of the State is surrounded by waters and a unique water ecosystem.

“There is vast potential in sea and river fishing tourism that can be developed to encourage the influx of tourists to the State, especially the east coast,” he said.

Citing Beluran, Kinabatangan and Paitan, Kong said these areas could be developed with tourism facilities characterised by lobster farming.
