THE Perak Government prefers to give land titles direct to Kampung Bali fish breeders in Tronoh than go through the State Agriculture Development Corporation (SADC).
State Higher Education, Science, Technology and Communication Committee chairman Thomas Su said the the previous state government gave the land titles to the SADC and the SADC leased them to the breeders.
“By awarding the titles directly to the breeders, the breeders will not be unnecessarily hassled,” he told reporters after a meeting with the breeders recently.
Su said that the Kinta land office had been given two weeks to ascertain the number of fish breeders involved and to submit a report to the state executive council.
“The state exco will then approve the titles to the breeders,” he added.
About 90% of fish bred in the area are exported.
