Bharat Mukti Morcha is deeply concerned about continues violation of fishing rights in Zuari River by trawlers carrying on illegal fishing in Zuari and mini – per seining. Daily monitoring of the illegal fishing activities in Zuari was repeatedly brought to the notice of the Fisheries department as well as Coastal Police. However both have proved to be flop in tackling the situation. Breakdown of patrol boat has been their favorite excuse.
Bharat Mukti Morcha has long been suggesting to fisheries department to have full time Patrol boat 24 hours everyday to demonstrate its serious commitment to the task at hand. Bharat Mukti Morcha worried about the repeated bungling from Fisheries department in responding to the calls on illegal fishing in Zuari. We have realized that Fisheries department too is kept itself deliberately ill prepared to tackle illegal fishing in Zuari.
