Bad weather&low catch hit fishing Posted on 11-Dec-2017
Bad weather and low catch hit fishing trade in Visakhapatnam. Bad weather and low-catch is the reason behind fishing coming to a standstill in Vizag. Nearly 70 per cent of the 700-odd mechanized boats were anchored in Vizag fishing harbor. Although there was no major warning from the Meteorological Department about any storm in the sea, strong winds kept the fishermen away from sea for a week. The sea was rough and the weather worried the fishermen and this has affected the fishing activity and seafood turning dearer said that the popular varieties such as silver pom fret locally known as Chanduva fish price is about 1,000 a kg a kg in the retail markets and similarly, the price of another well-liked fish variety Seer (Konam) has gone up to Rs 900 from Rs 600 while the price of tiger prawn has touched to Rs 1,200 a kg from Rs 700 and the small prawn is also high at Rs 500 a kg due to low availability. The marine pollution has hit hard to our livelihood. There is no catch in the ocean and we used to spend over Rs 25,000 for diesel and roughly around Rs 2.5 lakh for a single voyage but the returns are very low. Unable to meet the investment, most of the boats were anchored said, president of Dolphin Boat Operators’ Welfare Association Ch Satyanarayana Murthy.

Visakhapatnam: Colony Watch – 80-feet road a double whammy for motorists. As a part of the Smart City project, the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) has sanctioned a broad divider and double drain at the 80-feet road in Thatichetlapalem. The works have already started but there are no safety measures taken by the contractors due to which the motorists are facing problems. The GVMC has given the road beautification project to two different contractors for double drain works and the divider. Both the works are still underway. The 80-feet road has been blocked by the construction material on both the sides and with the debris of old divider at the middle of the road. M. Suresh Babu, a resident of Thatichetlapalem said, “On Saturday night, I was about to hit my vehicle to a concrete mixer while returning home at around 1.00 am. It was parked in the middle of the road and I could hardly see it as there were no street lights.”
The old road-divider has been dug and the debris was not yet cleared. Moreover, the concrete gravel and sand was placed there for many days for the drain works. These obstruct the traffic throughout the 80-feet road stretch, which runs along busy areas of Railway New Colony, Thatichetlapalem and Akkayyapalem. Locals say the GVMC has failed in monitoring the contractors who have not taken proper steps to maintain public safety while the works are in progress. Besides, there is no lighting at the entire stretch of the road. Apart from the
