Subject: For your urgent attention: night time illegal trawler fishing in Zuari


We wish to bring to your urgent attention that regularly two trawlers are carrying on illegal fishing every night between 8.00 pm to 3.00 am in River Zuari near the coast of Siridao, Banbolim, Nauxim, Cacra and Odxel villages. This makes mockery of Goa Police as well as Goa Fisheries administration giving impression that both the agencies are in paralyzed state.

In the light of the above we call upon you to initiate immediate action to stop illegal night trawler fishing as mentioned above.

We request Fisheries department and Coastal Police to station their Patrol boat in the night time in at Cacra Coast with staff on duty with proper authorization to act against erring trawlers. We also advise you to equip police, fisheries staff on patrol boat as well as Fishermen from the mentioned villages who have signed this letter with night vision cameras.

We are aware that since September 2017 Goa Fisheries Department has taken strong steps to stop illegal fishing in Zuari River which we admire very much and we request you to continue to crackdown on these two offending trawlers now in co-ordination with Coastal Police.

In the light of law and order problem created by Goa Trawlers in Malvan in neighboring Sindadurg District of Maharashtra leading to open clash of traditional fishermen of trawlers and subsequent police repression on traditional fishermen there we call upon you to be extra vigilant on this complaint and stop this tension from escalating any further in Goa.
We assure you of our continue support in case you approach us.

Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,

Maggie Silveira,
President, Goa State
