10th January 2015 morning ten trawlers illegally fishing in Zuari river. By 11.45 am 8 left two continued. Director was contacted by fishermen from fishermen from Odxel village. Director switched off the mobile after fishermen questioned her on illegal trawling in Zuari river on 9 January 2015. 5 Trawlers continued illegal fishing violating regulations in place till 5.00 pm.
Police at Harbor police station were contacted. They replied that their boats have gone for patrolling Colva and Majorda due to terrorists threats. It looks that police does not view illegal trawling as dangerous as terrorism. In fact it is more dangerous as industrial hunting which they are indulging is leading several fish species into extinction.
