Indian Marine Fisheries Bill: Fisheries ministry to hold virtual meet with MPs from coastal areas | India News


VILLUPURAM: The Union fisheries, animal husbandry, and dairying ministry will hold a video conference at 11am on July 15 with the MPs elected from coastal constituencies to elicit their views on the draft Indian Marine Fisheries Bill, 2021.
In a letter, Union fisheries minister Parshottam Rupala invited Villupuram MP D Ravikumar to attend the virtual conference to discuss various provisions of the draft Bill.
Rupala was optimistic that the inputs and suggestions of the MPs from the coastal areas would address the concerns related to the livelihood of traditional and small-scale fishers besides paving way for sustainable development of marine fisheries in the country.
He said Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla mooted the idea of convening a meeting with the MPs from coastal areas to discuss the provisions of the proposed the National Marine Fisheries (Regulation and Management) Bill, 2020 (now renamed as Indian Marine Fisheries Bill, 2021) and register their views and suggestions.
Birla mooted the idea during a discussion in February last year on the presence of foreign fishing trawlers in India’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).
