TaraTari’s shipyard as well as all the staff has been very happy to work with such partners. We would like to thank Mr Alam, Mr El Zein and all other FAO staff for the trust they have put into TaraTari Shipyard in achieving such project. These boats are the last ones for the year 2011, 25 units of FRP boats and safety equipment for the safe and efficient day duty of the fishermen.
Within the next months Department Of Fisheries will be closely monitoring the activities in the fishing waters, and optimisation of the product will continue with time to achieve adapted solutions in specific areas and their specific fishing tradition.
May 2012 bring new ventures to continue these development projects…
