Mangaluru: Minister for Fisheries and Ports S. Angara flagged off eight refrigerated and insulated vans procured by Karnataka Fisheries Development Corporation to transport fresh seawater fish to Bengaluru, Mysuru and, North Karnataka on Monday September 6.

After the launch Minister Angara said that the government would provide all assistance to the fishing sector’s development. He further stressed that fishermen should use caution while harvesting it. The marine fish, unlike freshwater fish, cannot be cultivated.

Karnataka Fisheries Development Corporation (KFDC) Chairman Nithin Kumar said that the refrigerated and insulated vans were procured with funding under National Agriculture Development Mission to supply fresh marine produce to the people of Bengaluru, Mysuru and, north Karnataka.

Further, he thanked Minister Angara for constant support in setting up cold storage in every district to store saltwater as well as freshwater fish.

MLA Vedavyas Kamath said “the Coastal Karnataka would see 16 fisheries developmental projects worth ₹1,100 crores, shortly.”

Mayor Premanand Shetty, KFDC Managing Director M.L. Doddamani and others were present.
