THE Sanatan Dharm Pratindhi Sabha is the first Hindu organization to publicly champion the 4FJ Campaign and has encouraged all its members to avoid kawakawa and donu during their peak breeding months.

National General Secretary Pundit Vigyan Sharma said their scriptures teach about the importance of looking after all living things.

“So we want to come together and join hands to save these fish by allowing them to breed in peace each year.”

Minister for Fisheries Semi Koroilavesau acknowledged the support of Sanatan Dharm Fiji for helping spread the message and ensure our communities can continue to benefit from these fish.

The Ministry of Fisheries has banned all sale, harvest, buying , possession and export of these rapidly disappearing A-grade fish from June 1 to September 30 and the ban covers all species of kawakawa and donu.
