THE SAFETY Net insurance policy launched two years ago to provide coverage for registered fisherfolk vessels, engines, and equipment has had zero uptakes, a representative from Advantage General Insurance Company, the entity that provided the insurance, has disclosed.

According to the representative, who requested anonymity, the first of its kind policy, which was launched by then Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Floyd Green, became fruitless after he was removed from the portfolio.

The representative also admitted lapses in the agency’s public education push.
