A seven-month ban on fishing was on Thursday clamped from November 1 by the Odisha Government within 20 km from the river mouths of Dhamara, Devi and Rusikulya in Gamjam district for protecting nests of endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles.

The ban was on motor boats, trawlers and mechanised fishing boats, a notification issued by the Fisheries department said.

The ban on the 20 km stretch of the Dhamra-Rushikulya river mouth was clamped in accordance with Sections 2, 7 and 4 of the Orissa Marine Fishing Regulation Act, 1982.

It was also applicable to the beaches of Gahirmatha, Rushikulya and Devi where patrols would ensure the ban.

“To ensure the safety of turtles, prohibitory orders are being strictly enforced every year,” Fisheries minister Debi Prasad Mishra said.

Fishermen were unhappy over the ban and said conservation of the turtles should not be at the cost of their livelihood.

Bank-funded Integrated Coastal Zone Management Programme has taken up alternative livelihood projects. - PTI
