Fisheries statistics in Malaysia

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the fishermen aid will be discontinued, but the Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Salahuddin Ayub declared that the incentive will proceed as usual. The fisherman aid was reported to provide RM200 to RM300 for 57,000 fishermen. Overall, Malaysia fishing industry may not be as big as palm oil and rubber industries, yet they still play a part in our nation economy.
