The Maharashtra government has imposed a ban on fishing between June 1 to July 31 as standard procedure to minimize the capture of marine life that comes near the shore for breeding.

The decision was announced recently under the Maharashtra Marine Fishing Regulation Act 1981, which prohibits machined fishing within 12 nautical miles from the state's coast. “Every year, the state government imposes such a ban. If trawler operators openly violate the ban, from June, a hefty fine will be levied on all violators,” said an official.
