The Price Of Fish

One thing we really enjoy when we are in Goa is the plentiful and varied supply of fresh fish that is served up so beautifully in the restaurants.

I am a little concerned about reports in The Times of the trawler strike:


I hope it gets sorted out soon, Our holiday would not be the same without the fish. If the price goes up then we will have to take the hit but what concerns me more is there may actually be a shortage of fish or worse, fih being transported in from other states may not be kept properly refrigerated or be as fresh.

Has anyone who is out there at the moment noticed any problems with the supply?

They have a week to get it sorted before we get there so fingers crossed

It is not just the rise in the price of diesel, in Goa they also want to stop the fishing boats from using untaxed red diesel and there is a shortage of fresh fish in Chapora, Mapusa and Panjim fish markets

Talking to a restaurant owner in Anjuna tonight who said he has not been able to buy fresh fish at a reasonable price for two days due to the shortage and he would not be able to sell it in his restaurant at the price’s been demanded but some places have stocked up and are selling frozen as fresh
