Ernakulam, Kerala...
West Bengal: A ‘pump’ keeps Bay of Bengal saline *

The salinity of the oceans that surround India play an important part in

salinity levels...

Goa: Chief Minister has proposed to increase the fishing ban from the
present 45 days to 75 days *

Povorim: There's not much in chief minister Manohar Parrikar's budget to
crow about. That perhaps is why he read the first part of the budget speech
in Konkani, though he struggled at times, and then switched to English for
the second part that deals with taxation. Having taken a beating from
pro-Konkani and pro-Marathi protagonists since the last assembly elections
for his U-turn on the medium of instruction, the chief minister attempted
to convince them of his pro-Konkani policy, not just by making his speech
in Goa's official language, but doling sops to the language...

Diocesans, the main celebrant was Fr Eremito Rebello, rector of the Blessed
Joseph Vaz sanctuary, Sancoale, while Fr Mouisinho Athaide delivered the

*Gujarat: In 8 months, 450 fishermen have landed in Pakistan jails *

The incident on Tuesday night in which 101 Indian fishermen were captured
by Pakistani Marines off the Jakhau coast is not the only one to happen in
recent months. In fact, what is unusual about Tuesday’s incident is that
the Pakistanis allowed 84 fishermen to return and arrested only 17. In the
past eight months, personnel of the Pakistan Marine Agency (PMA) have
captured 450 Indian fishermen and seized 150 of their boats, i.e., one boat
every three days...
India: Basa fish comes to industry rescue *

The Indian sea food industry, hit hard by the global slowdown as well as a
supply crunch, has turned to a fish species found in southeast Asia and
China to lift its fortunes.
The Basa, a catfish native to Vietnam's Mekong River Delta and Thailand's
Chao Phraya basin, is not only being imported in large numbers by Indian

fishermen had apparently started from Kalpatti fishing harbour on March 14

Exporters Association (MSPEA). The Validation Certificate confirms that the
fish have been caught in the Maldives and by the traditional pole-and-line
fishing method...
