LABUAN, March 6 — The Fisheries Department today officially began operating its Centre of Excellence for training potential seafood entrepreneurs.
The fisheries entrepreneur incubator costing RM181,160 was built in July 2019 and completed in October 2019, according to Labuan Fisheries director Faizal Ibrahim Suhaili.
He said it is the department’s second incubator.
