Caught: Taiwanese vessels, pretending to be Indian, stealing fish and the livelihoods of Indian fishers. Foreign vessels exploit India’s marine resources, often illegally, and reap huge profits. The local fishing communities struggle with the issue of depleting fish stocks and the destruction of marine habitats.

The Agriculture Ministry’s faulty policy is responsible for this crime at sea. Minister Sharad Pawar needs to stop this crime now.

You should ask Minster Sharad Pawar to stop illegal fishing because it is destroying the livelihoods of fishing communities.
