Greed takes over fishing in Zuari

Reports reaching from Siridao-Cacra coast indicate that there is complete failure of Fisheries department mechanism to check illegal fishing in Zuari. Daily basis over the past five days there are around 20 trawlers and around 50 mini per seine boats fishing very close to the coast. Both these are banned to carry on fishing withing five kilometers of the coast. Here is a letter from Fisheries department to trawlers. Click here for links. Similarly here is the Fisheries department letter to the mini per seine boats on illegal fishing. Click here for links.

Greed has taken over fishing practices and sustainability has flown out of window. Traditional fishermen are at the receiving end of this aggression. These fishermen are located in Siridao, Bambolim, Nauxim, Cacra, Odxel, Dona Paula, Caranzalem etc.

Trawlers daily enter Zuari at around 4.00 pm and carry on disastrous fishing scrapping river bed till late at 11.00 pm night very close to Cacra to Siridao shores.
