Kerala is one of India’s most popular tourist destinations.
Its rich history of traditional fishing is something that makes it a perfect place to explore.
But Kerala’s seafood culture has not gone unnoticed by the global food industry.
The state’s fish-farming community is still in a state of shock after the global outbreak of avian flu, with locals and tourists alike having to resort to imported imported fish.
“We were getting a lot of fish from China but we didn’t know how to cook it properly.
We have to wait till we get our supplies.
We need to buy fish that we can cook in our home,” said Sanjiv, who was caught off the coast of Kerala on Thursday.
We are getting a bit tired and it is not easy, Sanjibhai, fisherman in Kerala’s Fishermen’s Colony, told NDTV.
Many Kerala fishermen were caught off other states and even abroad, too, after they started catching fish in the early hours of the morning, with the first batch of imported fish being caught in Karnataka.
“I was working on a boat and I caught a large fish in one go.
I didn’t cook it well.
It is not possible for me to cook a fish like that in my home.
My wife is scared of the virus, so we will have to cook some fish with our relatives for dinner.
This is how we can survive,” Sanjiwade told NDtv.
