Denpasar, Bali (ANTARA News) - Bali`s canned fish exports in the first 11 months of 2007 hit a record high of US$11.8 million, a report said.
The exports represented a 99 percent increase from the same period in 2006, the Bali Provincial Industry and Trade Office said in a report on Friday.
Canned fish once disappeared from the list of the province`s non-oil/non-gas exports but this did not mean that the local fish canning industry ceased production, the report said.
The canned fish exports mainly went to the United States, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore.
The Bali fish canning industry is located in Jembrana about 80 km west of the provincial capital, Denpasar. (*)
