Artificial reefs to the rescue

Deputy Chief Minister Yahya Hussin is rightly worried: fish stock has been falling at an alarming rate. In ten years, catches from the sea have dropped by about 16%. Last year fishermen caught 175,000 tonnes of fish, 33,000 tonnes less than 1999's 207,000 tonnes. As the minister in charge of agriculture and food industry, he has been sinking artificial reefs into the sea to ensure fish and other marine animals will breed abundantly.

A helping hand for the distressed

Fishing in the wide open sea can be risky. Yet mishaps have been few. But when they do happen, fishermen find comfort in their association that lends them a generous helping hand. In its seven-year history, the Kota Kinabalu fishermen association has seen tragedy strike only four of its members: once three years ago and last year when Jamateh Jemunuh, 64, lost his 29-year-old son Jamlan to the sea. Demat Seman, 57, lost his boat and fishing equipment but is happy to be alive.
