Changes in inland fishery Bill sought

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Bangalore-based Asoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment has said that the Kerala Inland Fishery Bill should lay emphasis on protection of the habitat and measures to increase fish resources.

In suggestions submitted to Fisheries Minister S. Sarma on the basis of a workshop conducted by the organisation here recently, it said the current emphasis of the Bill was on regulation and policing.

The trust said the section dealing with aquaculture should stress against culture and distribution of exotics species. Provisions to ensure this should be included in clauses dealing with inspection of seedlings and certification
