Fishing Industry Board

The Fishing Industry Board Act of 1963 provided for the establishment of a Fishing Industry Board which came into force on 1 April 1964. This Board, with the functions and powers granted to it under the Act, will seek generally to promote the expansion and the efficiency of the fishing industry and to promote the export of quality fish and fish products. The Board consists of seven members, three of whom represent the three sections of the industry: fishermen, wholesalers, and retailers, and four independent members, one of whom is the chairman.
