Mangaluru: Following the 61-day fishing ban order, fishermen have anchored their trawlers, long-liners and other mechanised vessels to the shore at the fishing ports.

The trading activities have come to halt and the fishing ports look deserted and the normal buzz associated too is missing.

Some fishermen can be seen working on their fishing nets to repair whereas others are getting fully equipped for the new season.

Trawler owners can be seen giving facelift to their vehicles by painting them and overhauling engines.

The annual ban on deep sea fishing using mechanised and traditional boats to facilitate fish to breed, began in coastal belt on May 31 midnight and will continue up to July 31.

During the ban period, fishermen generally go for traditional fishing in Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Uttara Kannada districts, where the ban is enforced.
