Relaxing of Curfew on Sunday has Heaved a Sigh of Relief to Fishermen in the City

December 22: Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has ordered relaxing of curfew on Sunday morning, which has heaved a sigh of relief to fishing community in the city.
Trawl Boat Owners’ Association President Nithin Kumar that nearly 350 fishing boats with 600 tonnes of fishes had returned from deep-sea fishing. The fishing community through MLA D Vedavyas Kamath had appealed to the chief minister to lift the curfew for a few hours to help fishermen sell their catch on Sunday. He added that the relaxation from 3 pm to 6 pm was inadequate to unload the catch from the boats.  The fishes once removed from ice will start decomposing rapidly, he said when asked on why the fishermen had not auctioned the fishes when the curfew was relaxed on Saturday evening.
If the curfew is not lifted on Sunday tonnes of fish catch would have rotted’’, Purse Seine Boat Owners’ Association Honorary President Umesh Karkera said. He said when a city shuts down due to a bandh or curfew, the biggest sufferers are fishermen. Karkera said five to six purse seine boats and about 50 trawlers had returned to Bunder port from deep-sea fishing unaware of the curfew on Friday itself. These boats were sent back and asked to come back again on Saturday. Due to the curfew, the required quantity of ice to increase the shelf life of fishes was not supplied to the Bunder for past two days. But boats have sufficient ice to prevent the fish from getting spoiled until Sunday. As many as 5,000 people who are directly or indirectly dependent on the Bunder port are forced to stay indoors, he explained.
