From , 4:03 pm on 4 February 2019

The head of the Parties to Nauru Agreement says the safety of Pacific fisheries observers working on foreign vessels must be improved.

A number of observers have been lost at sea in recent years and Ludwig Kumoru says more needs to be done to keep the people working in this role safe. 

He told Christine Rovoi that the industry's leaders agreed at a recent meeting to look at the issue.
