The controversy over fish and their safety continues in Goa, with the newspapers reporting that a consignment of fish from Karwar in Karnataka worth Rs 4-6 lakh was seized in goa. The seized fish was sent to the Saligao waste treatment plant and destroyed.
This has led to a lot of resentment in Karwar.
The newspapers reported that trucks carrying fish from Goa to Kerala which pass through Karwar close to the goa karnataka border have their tires deflated. Now the fish owners in goa are worried that the vehicles will get damaged when passing through Karnataka on their way to Kerala
So they have suspended the transport of fish from Goa to Kerala and it is causing losses to fishermen in Goa.
I went with a friend to a pet store because she wanted to buy some special food for her dog. While at the store, I walked past the section with the hamsters, and they looked so cute. They were running around on their little wheel and eating their food. Seeing those hamsters made me want to have a pet of my own. I thought about it for a few days, and decided to get one. I bought a cage and some other items from Hamster Cages Depot, and got a hamster from the same pet store.
It’s fun to see the hamster running around on its wheel, but I really enjoy watching it climb through the tubes that are attached to its home. I’ve arranged the tubes into a series of angled paths that go back to the main area of its home in a loop. Continue reading “A Home for My New Pet”
After the goa government imposed a lot of restrictions on import of fish to goa, now those who sell fish from goa are facing problems, especially in the neighboring states of Karnataka and Maharashtra
Many of the fish caught in goa, like tuna, ribbon fish are not consumed locally in goa, they are exported to other states.
Since goa is a major importer of fish from other states, the fishermen in these states have been adversely affected.
So the vehicles of fish exporters from goa have been stoned and damaged in other states.
In some cases, the fish exporter vehicles from goa were blocked at the border checkpost according to media reports
The newspapers reported that the goan government has announced a ban on the import of fish to goa from November 12, 2018 after the scare caused by finding formalin in fish in July 2018.
This is likely to increase the price of fish in goa, especially during the peak tourist season in Goa, which starts in October 2018.
Now those who eat fish regularly will mostly have to pay more for the fish
Based on the data provided in Times of India, the amount of fish caught in goa in 2017, was less than the fish in 2016, so the prices are likely to increase
This is allegedly part of the government strategy to ensure that money earned in goa, is spent in goa, it does not go to other states.
However instead of sending fish in trucks and tempos which are intercepted at the border, now the fish sellers from other states are allegedly sending their fish to goa in the many Mumbai to goa buses. These buses are intercepted and the fish are seized by officials . However the seized fish are then sent to the saligao waste treatment plant, which is major waste of fish. It would be interesting to find how other states are reacting to the ban on the sale of their fish.

After the formalin in fish controversy in July 2018, the goa government made it compulsory for all fish traders from outside Goa to register with the FDA if they wanted to do do business in Goa. This was implemented from October 25, 2018, and some fish traders from Margao found that their trucks could not enter goa.
The prices of fish like mackerel, sardine in the local market have also increased due to the limited supply of the fish in the goan market, since mainly local suppliers are providing the fish. The media has also reported that the fish traders are claiming that 10000 people will lose their livelihood due to the ban, and there will be a 20% decline in the fish exports from goa.
Now according to media reports in the times of India, a Maharashtra MLA, Nilesh Rane, from Kankavli has threatened to damage goa registered vehicles, if the fish trucks from Sindhudurg in his constituency are not allowed to enter Goa.
He is also claiming that he will set up a fish market in Banda on the Goa Maharashtra border, if the restrictions on fish trucks continue.
The media reported that the import of fish into goa not conforming to regulatory requirements was banned after the formalin scare
According to some sources, the formalin can cause health problems including cancer
A large number of trucks, more than 30, were stopped at the border checkpost in Goa, and not allowed to enter the state
However local fish eaters were not affected because the local fishermen had a bumper catch according to media sources . Trucks carrying fish to fishmeal plants in the state were however allowed to enter the state.
This must have adversely affected the fish sellers from outside goa, who are supplying the markets in goa, especially the larger markets like Margao, Panaji, Mapusa, since they must have spent a lot of money procuring the fish.
During august and september a large number of fish are caught by fishermen
Many of these fishermen, only keep the larger fish, the rest of the fish are dumped on the beach.
The newspapers are sometimes carrying photos of the fish discarded on the beach.
Not only are these fish inconvenient, they also stink, when they start decaying
This indicates the poor waste management practices.
If the governance was better, the waste fish could be used, for making fishmeal or similar products
Oscar fish are known to grow rapidly in size, so many fish lovers are purchasing these fish.
They are also fairly expensive costing rs 140 each in panaji, goa
However those who have a fish bowl, should not purchase these fish, as they do not survive for long.
An oscar fish which was purchased died within 48 hours, a waste of money.
So it is not advisable to purchase Oscar fish unless a person has a fish tank, because they die very quickly , they require a lot of space.
However there is a possibility that the local intelligence and security agencies who are involved in home intrusions, may have killed the fish
Usually there is almost no one fishing in the lake in campal area, panaji, in 2018, However on 12 July 2018, FDA took action against the fish in the Margao wholesale market, which came to goa from other states, like kerala, karnataka, gujarat, andhra pradesh claiming that the fish contained formalin, which caused cancer
So the supply of fish to the fish market in panaji, and mapusa was affected.
It appears that the demand for local fish increased and at least 3-4 people were spotted fishing in the lake, Some of the anglers had a proper fishing rod, while others were only using a nylon thread for fishing.
One angler was using a yellow color substance as bait
