The Namibian government will sell 60 percent of its annual fish harvest to raise funds for medical equipment and medicines to fight the coronavirus pandemic. This was reported by the Reuters news agency with reference to the statement of the Minister of Fisheries of Namibia Albert Kawana.

According to the statement, the government intends to auction quotas for catching three types of fish - horse mackerel, hake and monk. The minister cited the need for medical equipment as the reason the government wants to raise money.

Fisheries are Namibia's third largest source of income after mining and agriculture, Reuters correspondents report, adding that the auction will be the first of its kind in the country.

However, a local radio station reported that Namibian Health Minister Kalumbi Shangula was surprised at the reason given for selling fish quotas.

FISHERIES minister Albert Kawana has challenged those who are against the auctioning of fishing quotas for governmental objectives to come up with concrete proposals as alternatives.

The minister said since the proposal to auction the quotas was announced, all he has received “are insults, defamatory statements, and negative criticism against the government and its leadership.”

Kawana made this statement on Wednesday when he was clarifying the disposal of governmental objectives/purpose fishing quota to the highest bidder. He said he had received backlashes on the decision from the public and the fishing sector.
