Ban on fishing lifted for one month by Sindh CM

Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, on the demand of a segment of fishermen, has announced lifting ban on fishing for one month in June amidst annoyance by a larger portion of the community which considers June and July as the breeding season for fish.

However, the spokesman for Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum said the community people have already stopped fishing from May 15 to allow fish breeding. He said greedy people have been using harmful nets, killing hatchlings during the season, which may result in wiping out fish stocks from the country. He said the community living along the 350-km Sindh coast and inland water bodies usually avoid fishing during these two months.

He said not only Pakistan but Indian fishermen also stop fishing for these two months.

He said they have been demanding of the government to pay at least Rs3,000 as stipend to each crew member for these two months so that they could meet their needs smoothly during the season.

The fishermen had raised the matter with provincial Fisheries Minister Zahid Ali Bhurgari and Fishermen Cooperative Society (FCS) administration, which approached the Sindh Chief Minister to resolve the matter on priority basis.

    Interestingly, I have very close friends who owns and exports most of the fish abroad and as far as I know, our fishing industry is doing very well. I have a friend who owns a marketing company and his exports are over $60 million alone … unfortunately, there’s a ban on fish export to the EU we would be killing it…

    now on the removal of ban, let’s not forget that Japanese Trawlers are illegally catching our fish on the coast of Balochistan and Sindh – deepsea fishing and we are not taking this up anywhere ….secondly, I am oppose to the ban but than looking at the economical conditions, I would support such a move..

    @fasee sab…..sir you are being very judgemental here…may they know something you and I don’t….may be due to the north korean nuclear blasts and other changes in the environment and climate…..fishes from other regions have migrated to our shores or maybe our local species breeded early….please learn more about it go on a fishing expedition for a week into the sea….and report back ….so i can comment any further….thankyou.

    @fasee sab….sir believe me I was not questioning your intellegence…yes we face certain stereotypes in our daily day to day life…what I said was that we must hear what they are saying…..maybe they deserve a lifting of ban….due to some climatic change….or some environmental change…..anything is possible…..God is great…!
    I myself have seen a few fishermen….both professional and hobbiest they are very patient people….as well as God fearing people….but what difference does it makes to you… don’t care about anybody other than yourself….you are not willing to listen to an inconvenient truth ….now I realise how Mr Al Gore must have felt speaking in front of a room full of people like you…..and the silly republicans never realised what he was upto…..well done Sire…!

    Hmmm…then u may give me benefit of havin a multiple personality disorder, which along with many disorders allaround me think I have.

    Adat mujhay is tarhan jeenay me hai…people all around me question my moralities.

    I am pretty good with religion, and religious matters, read a lot research a lot, yet I like adult material, research on sadistic adult content a lot aswell.

    For swerveut, iall he was doing was his job, and I pointed out how contradictory its given task might be, to REGULATE or BAN on a blog.

    I am used to sites where I can swear at all on others and can be sweared back at, without being banned….haven’t gone there for a while….although if I get moderated, then this banjara with a free spirit will move to. Where jahan koi paband-e-salasil honay ka khatra na hu
