Fisheries sector faces further levy increase

The country’s lucrative fishing industry could face further increases in levies and fees as the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources tries to ensure that every Namibian benefits from the resource.
The Confederation of Namibian Fishing Associations has warned against using the country’s limited marine resources to solve all the country’s problems.
The Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources will not micro manage small fishing right holders by merging them with big companies that have fishing vessels, Permanent Secretary, Moses Maurihungirire,  said in an interview.
