I want a separate Central Ministry for Fisheries as its share in GDP & livelihood is high

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Currently fisheries is both a state and central subject and administered by multiple ministries such as agriculture, commerce, environment, defense, shipping etc.  With millions of livelihoods at stake, the sector deserves separate treatment at the centre as in most states.  India has been lagging behind in managing its fisheries on a sustainable footing with outdated laws and regulations. A new government should create a Ministry of Fisheries to tackle the issues and problems for an accelerated and sustained development.
