THE National Fisheries Authority (NFA) last Friday bid farewell staff, Philip Lens and Ludwig Kumoru, who will take up posts in Solomon Islands and Marshall Islands.
Lens left the country on Sunday for his new role as the manager for observer programmes with the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) in Honiara, Solomon Islands.
The Pacific Islands FFA is an inter-government agency established in 1979 to facilitate regional co-operation and co-ordination on fisheries policies between its member states.
This is to achieve conservation and optimum utilisation of living marine resources, in particular highly migratory fish stocks, for the benefit of the peoples of the region, especially the developing countries.
Kumoru is expected to leave in August to head the Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) office as chief executive officer in Majuro, Marshall Islands.
NFA managing director John Kasu said the two men had been instrumental in the organisation over the years and thanked them for the services they provided.
