Free palm leaves for Gozitan fishermen

MGOZ Terry Camilleri

The fishing season will start soon and the Ministry for Gozo is offering assistance by distributing free palm leaves to Gozitan fishermen.

These palm leaves will be distributed free of charge and will be given to all fishermen who operate from Gozo.

Gozo Minister Justyne Caruana said that this scheme will help Gozitan fishermen but will also help palm trees remain strong.

Applications for this scheme could be collected from the Ministry for Gozo, from the experimental farm in Xewkija or from the Fisheries Office within the Ministry for Gozo.  One could also use the ‘mygozo’ mobile application.
