Under the project Neighborhood Fish Factories, Addu City Council is seeking consultancy that will establish factories in three districts of Addu city: Hithadhoo, Hulhudhoo-Meedhoo and Maradhoo.
Addu City Council announced applications for interested parties to apply once again after no applications were received for a previous announcement. Interested parties were allowed to submit applications before 9th of January.
Weighing, cleaning, freezing and vacuum packing and quality testing will also be carried out in these factories. Around 400-800 tons of fish can be processed through these plants.
The factories are expected to increase the income of fishermen and create more jobs in the community in addition to increasing the exports produced by the country and increasing the income for the general public.
