French Polynesia encourage to train fishermen in NZ

New Zealand's ambassador for Pacific development, Shane Jones, has invited French Polynesia to make use of maritime training expertise available in New Zealand.

He has been leading a delegation to the French territory this week.

Views were exchanged on industrial fisheries and fish farming, with a focus on the cultivation of grouper and mackerel.

Mr Jones spoke of his desire for a partnership in the fisheries sector and in maritime training in which he says New Zealand has long-standing know-how.
