K'taka will soon come out with new Fishing Policy: Min

Mangaluru, Jul 28(UNI) Karnataka Minister in-charge of Dakshina Kannada District Kota Srinivas Poojary said that the draft on comprehensive fisheries policy was ready and it would be soon placed before the State Cabinet for approval.
The policy will be tabled in the upcoming Assembly Session for approval, he further said.
He was speaking to the media after attending a video conference with Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on the occasion of BJP government completing one year in office on Monday evening.
''Already, objections and suggestions for the draft on fisheries policy have been received from various quarters. Based on the suggestions and objections, the policy will be finalised. The fisheries policy will help in promoting the fisheries sector,'' he stated.
The Minister further stated that the World Fisheries Day would be observed at Vidhana Soudha on July 30 and a book on the achievement of the fisheries sector would be released on the occasion.
He affirmed that at the fisheries meeting, the funds that Karnataka would get for the fisheries sector, under Atma Nirbhar Bharat of the Union government would be discussed and the future programmes of the fisheries department would also be discussed.
Mr Poojary informed that there was a demand for fish chips, launched by Karnataka Fisheries Development Corporation (KFDC) and accordingly, it has been decided to set up units manufacturing fish chips in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts, to cater to the demand.
He further affirmed that Dakshina Kannada district was effectively tackling the Covid-19 situation.
In the last one year, works related to rural roads, drinking water supply and port have been taken up. Assistance has been provided to the fishermen. The Krishi Samman Yojane too has benefited the farmers in the district, he added.
