Fishermen to go on indefinite strike against 45-day fishing ban

Fishermen in Tamil Nadu's Rameswaram threatened to go on indefinite strike against the government's 45-day fishing ban, from mid-April to May-end, during the fish breeding season. The ban is enforced every year and aimed at safeguarding fish during their breeding season and conserving fish stock. The Fishermen also refused to venture out to sea until their demands were met as their finances get hurt due to the ban.
