    Songkhla : 95% of small, medium-sized fishing operators out of business

    95 % of Songkhla small, medium-sized fishing operators out of business


    Songkhla - Over 95 per cent of small and medium-sized fishing boats in this southern border province have gone out of business following rising diesel oil prices, the vice president of the Songkhla Fishery Association said Thursday.

    Sawai Jeyakhom, the vice president of the association, said the fishing boats in the province have gradually gone out of business after the diesel oil price shot up.

    Eventually, after the diesel oil rose to Bt30 per litre, only about 200 out of 2,000 small and fishing boats in the province remained in business, he said.

    Exactly my thoughts.
    This is just an excuse why they are no longer landing fish as oil running is more profitable

    I think you'll find smuggling is more profitable these days.
