Authorities have decided to impose a lifetime suspension on the licenses of skippers whose fishing vessels have been used to engage in human smuggling and other maritime activities considered as being illegal.

State Minister of Fishieries and Aquatic Resources Development instructed the Director General of the Department of Fisheries to arrange for the immediate drafting of laws and regulations necessary for the implementation of this ban.

The decision to ban licences for life was taken during a meeting with the owners of multi-day fishing trawlers, at the Ministry auditorium yesterday.
