Illegal Trawling detected in Zuari river

It has been detected between 10.00 pm to 10.40 pm today March 12, 2023 that around 10 trawlers are carrying on illegal fishing in Zuari river within one kilometers of Odxel-Dona Paula Jetty shoreline with lights off.

Complaints are lodged at Goa Fisheries Control room but response indicate that staff is absent to put Fisheries patrol boat in waters. Patrol boats is currently tied up in Panjim with Bosun absent. Illegal fishing in the dark of the night therefore is beyond control leading to collapse of law and order in Zuari with massive loot.

Fisheries Minister Nilkhant Halarnkar has to get going in cracking down on Fisheries department- Trawler nexus connected with illegal fishing.
