Fishers and scientists are taking part in an effort to reduce the number of fishing nets in India’s rivers, according to reports in India.
The fishermen are part of the International Fishery Management Association (IFMA), a group of fishing organizations that are trying to encourage better fishing practices.
India’s river banks are also home to many endangered species.
“The Indian government has made some efforts in this regard, but we have to take our share of responsibility,” said Dinesh Bhatia, chairman of IFA.
“In the last few years, we have seen a number of fish die from fishing.
It’s time to do something about it.”
IFA is part of a global movement called the Global Fishing Initiative, which seeks to reduce global fishing.
The group recently launched a campaign called “Fish Save the World,” in which fishermen are donating their time and equipment to help save fish from extinction.
According to a recent report, fishing in India is among the most intensive in the world.
It accounts for more than one-third of global catches, according the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
A 2016 study from the United Nations Environment Programme found that India accounts for about one-quarter of the global fish catch, which is expected to rise to one-fourth by 2030.
The country is also home the world’s largest population of sharks.
