ALL parties, including cooperatives, need to join hands in fighting middlemen to counter rising fish prices, said Kuala Selangor MP Irmohizam Ibrahim.

Irmohizam, who is also Fisheries Development Authority of Malaysia (LKIM) chairman, said one of the initiatives to stop middlemen from increasing fish prices was by selling catch supplied by the National Fishermen's Association (Nekmat) directly to consumers via cooperatives.

"The fight against middlemen is one of the government's efforts, not only LKIM. In my opinion, it should be done with the cooperation of all parties," he told reporters after officiating at the Jom Makan Ikan programme, a campaign to tackle rising costs, in Saujana Utama, Kuala Selangor, today.
