APIA, Samoa (January 19, 1998 - PACNEWS)---The Samoa Life Insurance Corporation soon will offer a new life insurance policy that for the first time will provide coverage for fishermen while at sea.

Lealaiauloto Aniseto Ah Ching, General Manager of the insurance company, says the policy will provide maximum insurance coverage of 10,000 tala ($US 6,500), Radio 2AP reports. The cost of the new policy will be higher than ordinary policies because of the job risks involved.

The large number of people now employed in Samoa's fishing industry may have resulted in the insurance company devising a special policy for the fishermen, 2AP suggests.
