Thoothukudi fishermen to keep off sea

In view of the second anniversary of the tsunami, more than 500 mechanised and country boat owners in the districts of Thoothukudi , have decided to abstain from fishing in seas on Tuesday (ie.) 26th December.

In order to pay tributes to those who had lost their lives in the tragedy, special prayers would be held in temples and churches at fishing hamlets in both districts.

Around 250 mechanised fishing boats and more than 200 country boats in Thoothukudi district would remain anchored on Tuesday, said an office-bearer of the Thoothukudi District Mechanised Fishing Boats’ Association.
