Over 20,000 small fishing boats of various types operate in Pakistan’s EEZ and along Sindh and Balouchistan Coast throughout the year. Besides the inherent dangers of rough weather and natural hazards of high seas, the fishermen were also harassed and captured by law enforcement agencies of neighbouring countries. PMSA has been instrumental in providing protection to these fishermen and plays a vital role in providing assistance to fishermen in distress. It is also ensured that fishermen proceeding to sea are in possession of life saving equipment and each crew member is recorded to ensure their security.
