Speaking on the occasion the Minister stressed the need for a clear-cut policy on sea  fishing. It is regrettable that inland fishing has not received enough encouragement in the state despite significant strides in this regard by states like Andhra Pradesh, he said.

Excessive deep sea fishing and inadequate inland fishing has created problems, he said.

Stating that  officials have been instructed to encourage farmers to take up fishing   and also to organise an Andhra Pradesh tour for farmers to know about the success of inland fishing there.
