Indian scientists warn
of high sewage contamination
India's most popular Goa beaches are unfit for
swimming and fishing because of high sewage
contamination, Indian scientists have warned.
The level of fecal coliform bacteria in coastal and
river waters is much higher than the accepted safety
standards, said a study by the government-run
National Institute of Oceanography. Senior scientist
at the institute N. Ramaiah said Friday that the
contamination has been measured at 190 so-called
colony forming units while safety levels should be
at 100 units.

mechanised trawlers in Goa remain
off-water, thanks to a High Court directive which
banned fishing by big boats this time of the year.
But hundreds of fishermen, who have canoes – with
less than 10 horsepower engines venture out into the
sea in the wee hours every day.
Some 28,000 fishermen, natives of 105-km
coastline, look forward to the ban period (June 15
to July 31), because during the rest of the year,
trawlers do not leave much catch for them. And
during the rains, relatively less fish reach the
markets, so prices are high.
