Ian Douglas.Parliamentary Representative for the Portsmouth Constituency Ian Douglas has called on the fishermen in his community to collaborate with other businesses to enhance the sector.Douglas says a fish festival, a weekly fish Fridays and exhibition are just some ways the communities can come together to build the community.According to Douglas, there is a level of divisiveness in the community that must be addressed.“Try to collaborate with other persons in other business. You can collaborate with those in the yacht sector. The small restaurants can work with fishermen to purchase their products,” he advised.Douglas said there have been some setbacks but that should not deter any effort at moving forward.“All of us have a part to play in community building. Join forces, hold hands, don’t lose hope. He is suggesting that shares be sold to the members who are not involved in the sector.“This is a good way to build a strong business entity. Some of our Fisherfolk are getting old and there will come a day when our earning power will be reduced. I think you should get into a pension plan for fishermen,” he explained.He said the future of Dominica lies in the development of Portsmouth.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Share Sharelast_img
