Tamil Nadu Coastal Area Fishermen's Association and the Fishermen's Association have decided to boycott fishing activities indefinitely from July 21st to protest against the arrest of Indian Fishermen.

A meeting of the Associations was held here after 20 fishermen were arrested along with their four boats and were taken to Sri Lanka yesterday.

The fishermen also wanted the Centre to restore their fishing rights in the traditional areas in Palk Bay which included Katchatheevu.

The Centre had recently filed in the Madras High Court stating the Tamil Nadu fishermen had no fishing rights in Katchatheevu.

The meeting also decided to handover their fishing licence to the district officials on July 21 as a mark of protest.

They also planned to travel to Sri Lanka in their boats on July 26th flying white flags and seeking refuge in Sri Lanka for their livelihood.
