The Fisherman’s Market Programme was created as an alternative market channel to give fishermen the opportunity to market their catch directly to various levels of consumers. In addition, the aim is to reduce the level of involvement of middlemen so that fishermen get a better and profitable price return margin and consumers get a supply of fresh fish at a reasonable price.
The involvement of fishermen as participants has helped increase the income of fishermen from below RM1,000.00 per month to over RM2,000.00 per month. The layout of the Fisherman’s Market is also more organized and centralized under one roof with better and more comfortable infrastructure and equipment.
To date, a total of 135 Fisherman’s Markets have been built with the involvement of 640 participants.
