CID (Forest) puts up advisory

Staff Correspondent

Karwar: The forest wing of the Crime Investigation Department (CID) of Karnataka on Wednesday put up a signboard at Karwar fisheries port with details of the endangered fishes and fishermen have been advised that catching is banned by the government.

The signboard has the photographs and details of the fishes whose catching had been banned. The signboard was inaugurated by the local fishermen leaders P.M. Tandel and Ganapati Mangre.

K.S. Chikkerur, Additional Director-General of Police, CID (Forest), told presspersons that 80 per cent of the fishermen who did the fishing activities were illiterate.

They were not aware of the Wildlife Act and they did not know which fishes should be caught.

So to create awareness among the fishermen the sign board with the pictures of the endangered fishes was being put up by the CID (Forest) at the fishing port, he said. If the fishermen happen to catch such fishes, they must leave them into the water, he said.

Mr. Chikkerur said the CID (Forest) had written to the Naval authorities to stop the bombing practice as Netrani island (pegion island) near Bhatkal was known for its bio-diversity. The Netrani Island was known for its various types of fishes, flora, and coral fishes.
