Bahraini fishermen protest 6 months shrimping ban

MANAMA, May 4, 2015

Bahraini fishermen gathered at the Bahraini Fishermen Society headquarters in Muharraq to renew calls to reject the new six-month shrimping ban.

The fishermen said that the new ban, which has been extended from four to six months, was "unrealistic" and was not a viable option, reported the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.

The ban imposed in Bahraini waters prior to this year was from March 15 to July 15, but will now last until September 15 following an order from the Works, Municipalities and Urban Planning Affairs Ministry. - TradeArabia News Service
