Stir against fish import, foreign trawlers

Special Correspondent

KOCHI: To protest the Centre's move to allow import of fish from Thailand, the Fisheries Coordination Committee (FCC), a collective of different interest groups in the fisheries sector in Kerala, has decided not to let ships carrying fish cargo into the Kochi harbour.

Leaders of several organisations of fish workers, at a meeting of boat owners and traditional fishermen, also decided not to allow foreign fishing vessels into the harbour or the waters off the Kochi shore. The FCC, which has been campaigning against foreign trawlers and joint ventures that fish in deep sea for long, has been incensed by the move to import fish from Thailand. Following an Indo-Thai trade accord fish could be imported duty-free.
