The Fisheries Observers Agency (FOA) hosted a long service awards ceremony for their employees for the first time, where employees working for 5, 10 and 15 years were awarded.

Chief executive of the FOA, Stanley Ndara, said that the agency was established 17 years ago. “This will go down in the company’s history. It is great that we are able to recognise the most precious asset of the company - our employees.”

Chairperson of the Confederation of Namibian Fishing Associations, Matti Amukwa, thanked the FOA for their commitment and dedication. “Your job on board as observers is important, even if your presence on board is not always appreciated or the accommodation is not always of the standard that you wish.

“The FOA and the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources are the custodians of the country’s rich marine resources. Your efforts make a huge difference. Your job is worth the sweat and discomfort of working on board a moving vessel, sampling fish at 03:00; you are securing our futures,” he said.

The Lüderitz staff also had their long service awards and year end function last Friday.
