India: National Fishworkers Forum flays draft Fisheries Policy 2020 June 26,2020   |  Source: The Hindu Business Line

Forum calls for discussions within the communities across coastal States before moving ahead. The National Fishworkers Forum is up in arms against the draft Fisheries Policy 2020, saying that the government’s intention is not in favour of fishing communities or for protecting the oceans and the coast.

The Forum highlighted the procedural lapses on the part of Fisheries Ministry in putting out the policy on the website of the National Fisheries Development Board without giving any space for receiving comments from stakeholders or a cut-off date. It is even more appalling that the policy has not been uploaded on the Ministry’s website.
