Bush Betta resort: State says angling is banned

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: The State Government on Monday submitted to the Karnataka High Court that angling is prohibited under law and no such activity can be permitted in Karnataka.

The State made this submission when the court was hearing petitions by Bush Betta Wildlife Resort Ltd.

It said angling of fishes (catching the fishes, particularly mahseer in this case, and releasing them back into the river after weighing them), is banned.

The resort had challenged the failure of the State and the Central Empowered Committee in renewing the lease for its resort and angling camp on the Cauvery.

It said in 1997, the State gave permission to it to operate the fishing and angling camp from Mekadatu to the border of Tamil Nadu across the Cauvery. However, in 1997 the Government did not extend the renewal. When the matter came up on Monday, the State pointed out that angling was banned.

Justice Mohan Shantangouder adjourned hearing of the case.
