Govt shows reservations on proposed deep sea fishing policy


Staff Reporter
Karachi—The Sindh government believes that after the enforcement of 18th Constitutional amendment the fisheries sector exclusively pertains to the provincial government, therefore it is competent enough to issue fishing licenses and regulate fishing operations being carried out at the harbors and sea shore.
This was stated by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah while talking to Federal Minister for National Food Security and Research Sikandar Hayat Bosan on the issue of New Deep Sea Fishing policy here at the CM House.
Mr Bosan was assisted by DG Ports and Shipping Asad Rafiq Chandna, Chairman Sea Food Export Association Muslim Mahmoodi while the provincial Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Mohammmad Ali Malkani, Secretary Fisheries and Livestock Dr Nawaz Shaikh, DG Fisheries Dr Ghulam Mohammad and advocate general Sindh Zamir Ghumro assisted the chief minister.
