February 25 2002

HODEIDAH Fishers here went on strike last week due to the hike of fees imposed under the pretext of exporting, which is estimated at USD 15 thousands.
Fishing boat owners say the taxing will result in dire consequences such as unemployment and the loss of fishing capital investment.
This fee comes after a republican decree stipulated two percent of fish exports are to be taxed.
