Effect of registration of fishing vessels
389. (1) In all proceedings under this Ordinance against the owner or skipper of, or any person belonging to, any vessel entered in the Fishing Vessels Register, or for the recovery of damages for injury done by such vessel, the Register shall be conclusive evidence that the person entered therein at any date as owner of the vessel was at that date the owner thereof, and that the vessel is a Bangladesh sea going fishing vessel.
(2) This section shall not prevent any proceedings being instituted against any person not so entered who is beneficially interested in the vessel nor shall it affect the rights of the owners among themselves if there be more than one owner, or the rights of any owner entered in the Register, against any person not so entered who is beneficially interested in the vessel.
(3) Save as aforesaid, entry in the Fishing Vessels Register shall not confer, take away, or affect any title to or interest in any such vessel.
