Goa govt urges Centre to ban LEDs, bull trawling for fishing

Goa government has urged the Centre to enforce a ban on use of LED lights and bull trawling techniques for fishing in coastal states, saying they are harmful to the marine ecology.

The state government had last month said that it will ban both the fishing methods to protect the marine ecology.

Some trawler owners use LED lights for fishing in deep waters, which the fishermen in Goa have been opposing since some time.

In bull trawling, two marginally big-sized boats tie the net and drag it for a long distance to bag the entire shoal of fish.

During a meeting with Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh in New Delhi yesterday, Goa Fisheries Minister Vinod Palyekar urged that all the states involved in fishing
activities should strictly stop the use of LEDs and bull trawling method.

During the meeting with the Union minister, Palyekar also sought the Centre’s assistance to develop infrastructure for the fisheries sector in Goa.
