Kerala: Trawling ban ends tonight

The annual ban on trawling along the coast of Kerala draws to a close towards midnight tonight.

Over 3000 trawlers remained off the sea during the 52-day ban, which began on the 9th of last month.

While fishermen are all set to resume their activities, the rising Covid Test Positivity Rate in the state is a matter of concern as the fishing community are already reeling under several hardships caused by the pandemic.

The ban, introduced in 1988,  is aimed at lessening the impact of fishing practices on marine ecology. It coincides with the fish breeding season, thus contributing to the replenishment of marine fishery resources.
