Fishermen complain of overfishing by foreign companies in Mahra

A number of fishermen in Mahra province, eastern Yemen, said that local and foreign companies are practicing illegal overfishing in the governorate’s seas.

Fishermen in Mahra called on the concerned authorities to act quickly to stop indiscriminate over fishing and reduce the dredging process, by imposing laws and measures to regulate fishing and preventing indiscriminate dredging that affects young fish and threatens marine life.

Fishermen pointed out that indiscriminate fishing has caused a disaster in the seas of Mahra, which led to the extinction of many seasonal fish species.
