The editorial is about the recent abduction of
an Indian fisherman by Srilankan Navy . On Sunday 23 fishermen from TamilNadu
was abducted . Last year the number of
fishermen who were arrested was 240 , this year 69 has been arrested .
One of the accusations on Indian fishermen
here is that they use bottom trawling which has been banned in Sri Lanka quite
a long time ago .
India had promised to end bottom trawling in
deep ocean and replace it with deep sea fishing under the Blue Revolution
Another major point is that the distance
between Dhanushkodi and the International Marine Boundary Line is only 9
nautical miles and that results in
frequent breaches of marine boundaries .
India should completely remove bottom
trawling with deep sea fishing , also
the issue of fishermen under detention should be solved by talk .

juvenile fish , damaging sea floor and leading to overfishing .
