Trawling ban from Friday

KOCHI: The annual monsoon trawling ban will come into force in the State on midnight of June 14. The ban will be for 47 days according to the directive issued by the Supreme Court. The major feature of this year’s ban will be the restriction on vessels with engines exceeding 10 HP capacity. The apex court had directed that no vessels using engines above the specified capacity should be permitted to fish during the ban period. — Staff Reporter
