General Manager (GM) of Moorings Hotel, Joe Tamata has welcomed the banning of fishing all along the coast of Port Vila Harbour saying it is a tremendous boost to enable the lagoon to replenish itself of marine life, as well as discourage thieves from stealing from the hotel. While the GM confirms his staff’s coral and ‘natongtong’ or mangrove replanting project has been suspended until later, he adds, “We suspected criminals who disguised themselves as fishermen who arrived by boat late at night to steal furniture and other stuff from our facilities”.

e says since then, they always clear the bar and deck of all portable valuables for security reasons.

 “Now the ban is a great benefit to us to keep the thieves away and also allow the coral and fish and natongtng to grow and multiply”, the General Manager says.
