Addressing the protestors, advisor of the organisation P S Chengappa said the long standing demand of the fisher folk have not yet been met and the fisher women have to sell fish under a makeshift shelter since the past five decades. He also pointed out at the lack of facilities at the market. It was pathetic that the fish market of a would-be Smart City like Mangaluru should have such a deplorable condition.

Some fish vendors also spoke on the occasion narrating their woes.

Earlier, fish sellers took out a protest march from Rao and Rao Circle to the DC  office where a memorandum was submitted to the district authorities.
