Siridao fishermen threatened to agitate and if needed approach the courts if illegal fishing in their patch of waters is not sorted out.

They spoke to media after a meeting called by Fisheries Minister, director and police on Thursday 

Fishermen say that illegal fishing is still happening in their area.

Boats are not supposed to come within 5 kms of the shore, but they come right to shore.

They say that some 20 days back they had caught some boats from Vasco that were allegedly fishing illegally.

But till date no action has been taken on that.
