The president of the Union of Shipowners of the Pacific Coast, Omar Lizárraga Manjarrez, announced that Sinaloa fishing leaders from both high seas and coastal areas have been invited to this meeting.

They trust that the 100% Tax on Production and Services (IEPS) on fuels will be eliminated, so that a greater number of ships can leave for the season that begins on September 29.

In the same way, they insist that the commitment of the Government Secretariat must be fulfilled, that this Wednesday Quirino Ordaz Coppel meet with the fishermen of the high seas at the dock of the Bonfil Park.
