The government has imposed a 65-day ban on fishing off the Bay of Bengal to try and preserve the fish stock and boost their breeding. 

The Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock issued a notification in this connection on Thursday.

The ban will remain in force till July 23. 

All types of fishing vessels will be under the purview of the restriction.

The notification also mentioned that this ban has been imposed with the aim of proper breeding, production, conservation of fish resources and sustainable fishing in the marine waters of the country.

Fishing in all coastal countries across the world remains prohibited for two to three months during the breeding season as it is essential to ensure a safe environment for mother fishes during this time.
