KARACHI, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Apr, 2021 ) :Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) Friday apprehended a foreign fishing boat and its six crew members.
In the recent past number of unwarranted intrusions into Pakistanis waters has been observed.
Given the prevailing environment and the fact that these vessels are generally fitted with GPS equipment, their presence deep inside Pakistani waters raise concerns, as these boats may be used for illegitimate purposes.
Furthermore, the foreign fishermen continue to intrude in Pakistan's marine rich Indus Delta Region containing high quality fish, at the cost of livelihood of local fishermen resulting in depletion of our fishing stocks and causing ecological damage.
