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.
