Company director report

1995 BAY LINERS LIMITED DIRECTORS REPORT Your Directors have pleasure in presenting the Sixth Annual Report together with the Audited Accounts for the year ended 31st March, 1995. THE PROJECT Your Directors wish to inform you that world wide tuna fishing industry is passing through recession. Along with many other companies your Company also incurred losses. The various factors for this performance are (1) the price of sashimi grade tuna in Japan plummeted to a rock bottom price of Yen 600/kg, (2) the inconsistent catch rate in Indian Ocean and (3) due to Yen appreciation by more than 20%, the import of Bait Fish, spares and hiring of Japanese manning have become quite expensive for the operations. This scenario has affected not only your Company but also other Indian companies. It has been further observed that most of the companies from Taiwan, Korea and Japan also incurred heavy losses in tuna fishing. Added to the above problems, as Japan was the only market for us, the Kobe earth quake, certain internal disturbances in the society of Japan are also some of the factors for the sashimi grade tuna market crash. Under the circumstances, the company reduced all its overheads, operating cost to a minimum extent to sustain the ongoing recession.
