Fish the main dish in the menu of South Indian dishes is now on rise in its prices as trawling ban comes into effect starting 14th June for the next 47 days. “In the past two days, seer fish prices have been going up by 10 to 15 percent… today it’s Rs.800 a kilogram and very soon it will reach an all-time high of Rs.1,000 a kilogram,” said a woman fish vendor.

The trawling ban has been an annual feature since 1988 and the sea till 12 nautical miles from the Kerala coast (the territorial waters of India) will become silent with foreign trawlers and mechanised boats banned from casting their nets.

This ban, however will not be for those who fish on canoes (the traditional Vallom that’s fitted with a small motor).
