Local fishermen have expressed concerns on issuance of Mercantile Marine Department (MMD) certificates to 12 deep sea fishing trawlers, which await Sindh Fisheries Department permission to operate in provincial territorial waters of up to 12 nautical miles from the coast. One official source said the Sindh Livestock and Fisheries Department received the letter to grant permission in January but has not followed through so far.
