Chairman's Message

Yashpal A. Suvarna

The coastal region is rich in sea wealth, in the form of fisheries. Karnataka is blessed with an extensive coastline which is known for its excellent fisheries potential. The state has a large fisherman community which depends on fishing for livelihood. These people belong to traditional fishing communities and most of them lack the education and financial backing to compete effectively in the modern commercial scenario.
