The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has recommended guidelines for fishing using lights on Indian waters. This comes against the backdrop of conflict between traditional fisherfolk and operators of light fishing units on this age-old fishing method, which is widely practised in the Asia-Pacific. CMFRI’s Marine Fisheries Policy brief denies permission for light fishing within territorial waters (up to 12 nautical miles) to safeguard the interests of traditional fishers, prevent conflicts, and protect coastal fish stocks. While allowing light fishing outside territorial waters, the brief lays down certain conditions. It restricts the number of fishing vessels; regulates the power of lights used on board; and limits the number of days of purse-seine light fishing operations in a month.
