Ministry probing recently issued trawling licences

The Ministry of Agriculture has initiated an  investigation to determine how two new trawling licences were issued.

The move comes after the Guyana Association of Trawler Owners and Seafood Processors (GATOSP)  protested that it was in contravention of sustainable fishing practices.

Disclosure of the probe was made by Director General at the Ministry of Agriculture, Madanlall Ramraj, who also acknowledged that the ministry has received a letter of objection from GATOSP.  Ramraj said they are reviewing the entire process that led to the issuance of the licences as well as the objections made.
