KUALA SELANGOR: Over 86,000 registered fishermen in the country have been cautioned against receiving and spreading unverified information on the social media.The Malaysian Fisheries Development Authority (LKIM) chairman, Datuk Seri Dr Irmohizam Ibrahim said the dissemination of false news by fishermen through new social media networks such as Facebook, WhatsApp and blog sites could mar the image of fishermen. Barisan Nasional always ensures the welfare of fishermen is taken care of through government transformation programmes.
