When the new charters of carrie Fisher and daughter, 6th Sense Fishing were announced, many wondered what kind of fish they would catch and what would happen to them.
They will be using these charters for their own fishing, to make money for their families, but also to feed their families.
What they will be fishing with?
What kind of carriageway will they be able to navigate through?
How much money will they earn?
These are all questions that will have to be answered by the fishers, and if they can be told that there will be no income for them, then it will be a disaster for them.
In the case of the new charter, the charters owner is not the Fisher family but a local fisherman who has chosen to join the company, as the Fishers family will be on a fishing charter.
According to the Fisher’s website, the company has been established as a family-owned enterprise since 1999 and has worked for the fishermen since 1996.
The Fishers have already earned around Rs 2.9 crore from fishing and have spent Rs 5 crore on buying equipment for their fishing fleet.
They have a fleet of around 6 fishing boats, including 4 sail boats, 2 boats for fishing in the lake, and one for chartering in the sea.
What will happen to the fishermen?
In India, fishing is an integral part of the Indian economy, as we have around 4,000 species of fish and nearly 10 lakh species of crabs and lobsters.
The fish and crabs have been exported from India to the world for centuries and we have a huge demand for seafood in India.
We have over 50 lakh crabs, and nearly 1 lakh lobster.
In the case that the new fisheries charter comes to an end, it will bring the fishery in India to a standstill.
What are the risks?
We can be certain that there are a lot of risks in this charter, as it is an illegal and unregulated fishing vessel, according to the Kerala Fishermen’s Federation.
Fishermen say that they will have no income as the charter owner has refused to pay for the use of the boats, the equipment, and even the fishing fees.
They are not allowed to fish from their own vessels.
The fishers will have the option of taking the charter from their family, or they can also take a fishing boat and charter the fishing boats themselves.
The fact that the Fishermen Federation has threatened to take legal action against the charmers owner, should concern all of us.
Will this change the way people are thinking about fishing in India?
We hope so.
We want people to understand the risks involved and take responsibility for what they are doing.
The future of India’s fishing industry depends on how we can protect our fishery and provide them with sustainable livelihoods.
