Goa bans fish import from neighbouring states

IANS  |  Panaji 

The government has banned the import of fish from neighbouring states until July end in the wake of a controversy over the use of formalin in fish consignments, said on Wednesday.

"A formal notification will be issued by evening. The decision has been taken as a measure of abundant caution," Parrikar told a press conference.

Parrikar said that once the annual ban on fishing in ends on July 31, and fishing officially resumes on August 1, there will be no issue of fish shortage in the state.
