Mukomuko, Bengkulu (ANTARA News) - The Mukomuko District Marine and Fishery Service, Bengkulu, said it would build two fish auction places (TPIs) in two fish landing harbors in the district in 2019.

The fish auction facilities would be built in the beach of Pantai Indah Mukomuko of Koto Jaya and in a location between the village of Air Buluh and village of Air Rami, an official of the district Marine and Fishery Service Joni Kelana Putra said here on Thursday.

Joni said the plan to build the TPIs in the two locations had been included in the list of sea fishing budget of 2019.

The fish auction buildings would have fish storage facility and a security guard post, he said.

The locations are strategic in the fish landing facility owned by local fishermen, Joni said, adding the fishermen would sell their fish in the places.

He said there were five TPIs built previously in that area but they could not function well as they are too far from the fish landing facility.
