Management of the Tema Fishing Harbour has held its 1st quarter stakeholders meeting to look at better ways of resolving issues bothering the fishing industry so as to improve it.

The General Manager of Tema Fishing Harbor, Kumi Adjei-Sam, outlined the new GPHA Tariffs for the main Ports and the fishing harbour and hinted they be officially applicable from the beginning of May 2018.

In relation to land issue, the Corporate Estate and Environment Manager of GPHA, James Gaisie, urged all occupants of GPHA lands to acquire legitimate documents covering their use and pay the required rents.
