Fishermen Seek Shift In Ferry Route

LANGKAWI, Feb 22 (Bernama) -- The Penarak Fishermen's Association has appealed to the Marine Department to shift the ferry route to Kuala Perlis away from the Pancor Strait to prevent encroachment into the inshore fishing waters.

Association Chairman Marzuki Ibrahim said today an appeal letter had been sent to the department through the Langkawi Fishermen's Association and the matter was raised with Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Johari Baharum during a recent meeting with the local fishermen.

He said Kampung Penarak had more than 100 inshore fishermen.


A good request but diverting the normal route might increase the fuel cost for the ferry.
I think better ask the Deputy Agriculture to create more breading areas for the fisherman.
