    Abstract

    The project concept “Shuchitwa Sagaram”, was evolved in a discussion held by the Hon. Minister for Fisheries Smt. J. Mercykutty Amma with the Kerala Fishing Boat Owners Association. The proposal was to collect the plastic and other garbage from the sea bed with the cooperation of the fishing boat operators take it to harbours, sort, wash and crush it in the shredding units installed in harbours and make it ready for recycling. Fishing boat operators at Neendakara harbor came forward to take the responsibility of collecting the garbage from sea take it to the land without any cost. The Hon. Minister for Fisheries Smt. J, Mercykutty Amma was the sole inspiration of the project. Under her patronage a team of dedicated Govt. officials from Harbour engineering Department, Fisheries Department, NETFISH (MPEDA), State Shuchitwa Mission, Society for Assistance to Fishermen (SAF), etc were mobilized and the project Shuchitwa Sagaram was launched as a multi-disciplinary project.
