Rains along with exquisiteness also bring anticipations and opportunities for every business. Every business is on boom this time may it be tourism industry, food industry, agriculture sector or any other economic activity. But, amidst of such scenario, something callous is ruining éclat of lakes of Udaipur.

The heinous act of illegal fish hunting in all the lakes, be it Swaroop Sagar (opposite to Hotel Pahadi Palace, near Wolkem Garden, under THE STUDY Bridge), Fateh Sagar (Outside Lake House), Pichola (Jal Bhuraj, Jodh Singh Ji Daiji Setu, Nayi Puliya Backgrounds of Hotel Rajdarshan) is tarnishing breeding of flora and fauna.

[Issue] Illegal Fishing In Overflowing Lakes

Breeding of fishes begins with onset of Monsoon, as fresh water accumulates and temperature of lakes cool down. However, during this time in greed of earning some additional money illegal fish hunters’ starts approaching lakes to catch fishes. Knowingly or unknowingly by hunting single fish they also kill about to born fishes hence tarnishing growth of whole breed . This way natural eco-cycle also gets disturb.

Some mandatory measures in this direction should be:

  • Government can team up with NGOs to aware local residents of that locality where this act takes place.
  • Small teams of young people residing in the fish hunting area can keep check on illegal hunters.
  • All restaurants and hotel owners should stop serving fish in this season. This will discourage unauthorized buying and selling.
  • A communication campaign via media to common people should get start.

This issue was brought in notice to us by Mr. Irfan Ali, environmentalist and social activist who says, “I feel it is a crime but how artistic it is to do things right in front of everybody and still escape silently”.

This statement is irony on reluctance of authorities over such open wrong doings. Words of Irfan Ali will die here only if common people will not come forward to check this situation. The casual attitude upon things will never improve the condition; it will only lead to discussions later during assembly hours, nothing else!!
