The Andaman and Nicobar Islands Marine Fishing (Amendment) Regulation, 2011

The Union Cabinet today approved the promulgation of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Marine Fishing (Amendment) Regulation, 2011 by the President under article 240 of the Constitution.

The approval will strengthen the coastal security in the coastline of the Union territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands in an effective manner by having a streamlined system of registration of all fishing vessels under a single law namely the Merchant Shipping Act, 1958. 


The Andaman and Nicobar Islands Marine Fishing Regulation, 2003 regulates the fishing by fishing vessels in the sea along with the coastline of the Union territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Keeping in view of the decision taken by the Government of India to have a streamlined system of registration of all fishing vessels under a single law namely the Merchant Shipping Act, 1958 for strengthening the Coastal Security, the Union territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands has proposed for promulgation of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Marine Fishing (Amendment) Regulation, 2011, to prohibit the use of fishing vessels for fishing purpose unless such fishing vessels are registered under the Merchant Shipping Act, 1958.
