Fishermen in Rameswaram wary of venturing into polluted sea waters

Rameswaram, Feb 28 (ANI): Untreated sewage, factory waste and other pollutants have turned the waters of Agni Tirtham beach in Rameswaram into black sludge. The fishermen community in Tamil Nadu's Rameswaram complained that their repeated pleas to clean the beach and its surroundings have fallen on deaf ears.

With garbage floating on the water, it has become difficult for fishermen to go fishing. The farmers also fear that the chemicals from factory waste could prove hazardous.

Water pollution not only affects fishermen directly but the untreated sewage and chemicals endanger marine life. The fishing community in turn incurs huge loss as more and more fish die due to polluted water.
