KOZHIKODE - The Fisheries department of Kerala government is all set for a major reform in the fish sale and auction sector. The move is aimed at restricting fish auction at harbours through permit and to protect fishermen from exploitation.
A comprehensive regulation is also being planned to protect fishermen and prevent middlemen in fish auction.
The fisheries department officials also decided to prohibit fish auction outside harbours and marketing centres. The decision was taken based on the suggestions by fishermen, fisheries officials and trade union members a few days ago.
