 Now  comes  the  first  'legal  comment'  on  the  same  !  Chuckle  
 
 Are  there  any  other  'Government  Body'  that  has  a  say  in  this  matter  ?
 I  believe  there  is  a  'Coastal  Regulation  Act'  which  perhaps  covers  protection  of  'marine  life  also'  ?

 Dear  K  Ram
 'Coastal  Regulation  Act'   was  enacted  in  1994  and  so  far  I  knew   that  there  is  a  specific  maps  of  34  zone  being  pointed  in  NIC  database  and  also  maps  of  India.  All   the  clause  and  sub  clause  are  put  under  jurisdiction  of  Min.  environment  and  Mins.  of  Sc  and  technology.  Very  harsh  laws  for  common  fisherman.
 Regards
 Kaushik

 Dear  Kaushik,
 
 I  must  say,  you  are  very  well  informed  on  this  subject  matter.
 
 Talking  of  fishermen  and  laws  of  the  country,  I  recently  came  to  know  from  a  casual  discussion  in  a  social  event,  that  there  are  companies  which  makes  some  chemicals  used  for  'fishing'.  
 
 I  am  informed  that  these  chemicals  have  a  sedating  effect  on  the  fish  and  they  get  caught  more  easily  increasing  the  yield  per  trip  of  the  trawlers  used  for  these.  Fuel  saving  ???  More  profits  ???  Endangers  other  marine  life  ??  Endangers  people  who  consume  this  chemically  laced  fishes  ???
 
 I  wonder,  which  laws  control  these  and  who  is  harrased  and  who  is  protected  ?  
 
 Regards,
 K  Ram

 welcome  to  INDIA  folks.
 It  is  a  developing  country.  means  we  are  still  learning.
 
 Look  at  it  this  way,  fish  collection  is  not  banned.  take  all  the  Tangs  and  angels  out  of  the  sea.
 all  the  corals  will  anyways  be  overtaken  by  micro  and  macro  algae  and  die.
 
 That  is  what  happens  when  we  have  laws  without  doing  due  deligence  of  study  or  research.
 It  is  a  interconnected  ecosystem,  protect  all  or  none.
 
 I  think  all  this  ban  stuff  is  just  serving  for  some  people  to  make  money.
 or  someone  decided  "kutch  toh  bachaoo"   Drinking

 Regards,
 K  Ram                  

 Costal  regulation  Act  is  primarly  intended  to  regulate  construction  activity  along  the  coast  line.
 Protectionof  marine  life  is  neither  an  intended  or  ancillary  object  of  the  act.
 Indian  Wild  life  act  regulates  the  flora  and  Fauna  in  India.
 This  is  also  intended  to  regulate/ban,  hunting/killing/keeping  as  pets  of  terristial  animals,  and  developement,  protection  of  Wildlife  saunturies  both  terriatial  and  water  bodies.
 Aquatic  animals  have  been  added  as  an  after  thought.
 The  impact  of  this  act  is  overall  positive,  and  has  resulted  in  protection  of  various  wild  animals  like  tigers,  asiatic  lions,  rhinos,  elephants.  These  animals  had  nearly  been  hunted  to  extincation,  and  would  have  suffered  the  fate  of  Indian  cheetah,  which  no  longer  exsists  in  wild  in  India

 Dear  Sandeep  
 [quote]tigers,  asiatic  lions,  rhinos,  elephants.  These  animals  had  nearly  been  hunted  to  extincation,  and  would  have  suffered  the  fate  of  Indian  cheetah,  which  no  longer  exsists  in  wild  in  India[quote]
 What  about  the  Lissemys  punctata  (Indian  Flapshell  Turtle)?  It  is  in  the  verge  of  extinction  from  MP  and  Gujarat  not  because  of  its  meat  but  for  its  nails  which  are  used  for  Tantik  kriya's   to  make  money  from  the  heaven  Smile   Thousands  of  flapshell  turtles  hack  to  death  for  their  20/18  nails  and  from  politicians  to  business  tycoon's  everyone  is  involved  in  this  mockery  game.  All  are  hypocrite.

 You  have  to  look  at  the  genesis  of  wildlife  protection  in  India.
 It  started  with  Project  Tiger  to   protect  Bengal  Tiger  and  was  a  pet  project  of  the  then  PM  Mrs.  Indra  Ghandhi  also  it  was  liberally  funded  by  WWF.  Both  these  factors  contributed  in  initial  success  of  conservation  efforts  in  India.
 So  far  we  have  not  a  PM  or  a  important  person  interested  in  aquatic  animals  and  also  no  international  agency  is  into  high  profile  funding  of  aquatic  conservation.
 Let  us  hope  some  one  takes  up  this  issue  and  does  something  before  we  loose  all  our  aquatic  friends.  Which  will  be  a  disaster  because  India  has  a  long  coastline  and  numnerous  fresh  water  habitats.

 Dear  Sandeep
 Badly  need  a  persona  like  Prince  Charles  or  Jacky  Chan  to  inspire  others  to  save  the  Wild  life.  One  Rajendra  Singh  is  not  enough.

 News  on  Wild  life  Act
 Famous  Czech  entomologist  Peter  Savage  and  his  colleague  Emil  Vasquaz  got  imprisonment  for  3  years  and  fined  50  thousands  for  catching  rare  Butterfly  and  Insects  in  Sigalila  Sanctuary  in  Darjeeling,  West  Bengal..  They  were  booked   under  section  51c  IWA  and  Judge  U.  K  Nandi  given  verdict  on  the  basis  of  Local  Forest  Warden’s  witness.  A  rare  instance  in  India.
