Government Opens Call for Fish Processing Plant Construction

14 October 2014

MALTA - The government has launched a call for the expression of interest for the construction and operation of a fish processing plant at the new Marsa fish market.

The fish market, which is built on the site of an old reverse osmosis plant in Marsa, was completed using EU funds, reports MaltaToday.

"This new plant will ensure that jobs are created and that a market is present for all fish that are caught," parliamentary secretary for fisheries Roderick Galdes said.

"This project is a clear example of the government's willingness to work with the private sector and to cooperate with other countries to enhance investment in fishing and aquaculture."

The closing date for collecting the expression of interest has been set for 20 October while the closing date for its submission has been set for 22 October.
