Monsoon fishing is a popular activity in Kerala, India. However, it is illegal to fish in the creek during the monsoon. Fishing continues on a wide scale even though it is legally prohibited to catch backwater fish from rivers and paddy fields during the breeding season.
This is endangered due to fish stock depletion, and fishing is prohibited during the monsoon season. A large section is fishing for recreation. Many have lost their jobs, and the ones who have closed their small-time businesses in the rural areas have stepped into the online fish trade and fishing arena to manage their financial needs.
Modern equipment for fishing shops is also widespread. Others from the river in the fresh rain, fish from lakes, move to low lying fields to streams, and creeks climb up in droves. Fish from rivers have a tendency to flock to low-lying fields, streams, and creeks to move with fresh water, especially in rainy seasons.
The ones that come up like this for breeding are referred to as “fry.” Twit fish, which contain eggs, are easier to catch when they congregate in shallower water. This is why so many people go fishing at this time of year. It’s like a celebration in many places. An environmental activist named Hamidali Vazhakkad said that about 60 species of fish that people eat are in danger of going extinct because of this.
