Will ensure no unregulated and disastrous fishing, says Fisheries Minister

Fisheries Minister Felipe Neri Rodrigues said his focus would be to ensure that there is no “unregulated and disastrous” fishing done in Goa. He admitted that unregulated activities have been going on practically at all the jetties in the State and said that the department will have to pull up its sock to regulate the operations at the jetty and that this will be his main priority. 
“We have to respect the natural resources and the department will have to monitor how it is exploited and use modern technology for that purpose,” he said, while disclosing plans to acquire the required modern technology. He said he will introduce mechanism including the necessary software to enable the department to track a trawler the moment it enters the channel leading to the jetty and also estimate the amount of catch it is bringing in. “Right now, unfortunately we do not have such tracking mechanism and hence have to rely upon the figure given by the trawler owner who very often gives a lower figure to hide the fact that there has been over exploitation,” he said.
