The Namibia Fish Consumption Promotion Trust (NFCPT) is delivering on its mandate to promote the consumption of fish in Namibia. The achievements of the Trust during the past 15 years since its inception in 28 March 2001 by Cabinet decision, include substantial infrastructure development and human capital investment in order to take fish to the nation.
The NFCPT currently owns and operates 16 fish shops in 12 regions of the Namibia, employing roughly 136 employees, to deliver on its mandate of making fish more accessible and affordable to the Namibian population. These shops are located in Walvis Bay, Swakopmund, Windhoek, Keetmanshoop, Mariental, Lüderitz, Gobabis, Rundu, Ondangwa, Ongwediva, Eenhana, Outapi Opuwo, Nkurenkuru and Omuthiya.
Due to the efforts of the NFCPT Namibians are indeed consuming more fish, which is supported by statistics. In 2001 NFCPT distributed a mere 500mt. This amount has since increased to 6 274.19mt during 2015.
The NFCPT is awarded an annual quota from the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources. With this quota horse mackerel and hake are caught in Namibian waters enabling the Trust to sell the fish to the public at a discounted price to ensure affordability.
NFCPT is always working hard to ensure that our fish shops are stocked with fish and ensure that all our customers are happy.
