UN US Red Cross to Restore Fishering in Tsunami-Hit Areas

New York - The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) announced recently that it has partnered with the American Red Cross to help fishing communities in Indonesia’s Aceh Province that were heavily impacted by the 2004 tsunami.
The three-year project will assist in promoting the responsible and sustainable management of fisheries and aquaculture that coastal communities rely on for food and employment. Enhanced supervision of these sectors is crucial to prevent overfishing and prevent any further damage to ecosystems still recovering from the tsunami, FAO said as quoted by UN News Center.
Aceh Province’s western coastal area and Nias Island, North Sumatra, were devastated by an 8.9-magnitude earthquake and gigantic tsunami on December 26, 2004, which destroyed most of infrastructures, including harbors and fish markets, in the areas. (Source: Antara130507)
