Tamil Nadu has banned new registration for bottom trawlers in the Palk Bay area as one of the solutions to mitigate the Indo-Lanka fishermen issue.

The Foreign Ministry issuing a media statement said that this was disclosed during the India-Sri Lanka Ministerial Meeting on Fishermen Issues, held in New Delhi recently.

"The Indian side was satisfied with the progress on the release of apprehended fishermen and detained fishing vessels in the recent past while reiterating the release of all the remaining Indian fishermen and fishing vessels in Sri Lankan custody", the statement added.

Recent initiatives taken by India to end bottom trawling in the Palk Bay area were shared with the Sri Lankan side during the meeting.

These include launching a programme on diversification of bottom trawlers into Deep Sea Fishing Vessels for tuna long lining under Blue Revolution Scheme, construction of Mookaiyur and Poompuhar fishing harbours, capacity building programmes for fishermen of Palk Bay area in deep sea tuna long lining.
