Kundapur, Nov 15: Locals living around the beach of Kodi near here had Sardine fish feast on Wednesday, November 14.

The traditional fishing boat of Karvali Friends of Beejadi, which went for fishing got an abundant bounty of Sardines. They could not pull the net due to the weight of the fishes and it got torn in the process. They got around 3,000 kg of fish in the net. But more or less the same amount of fish escaped the net as it got torn.

Rumors spread around the locality near the Kodi beach at around 6.30 am that fishermen of the traditional fishing boat have got fish in abundance. Locals rushed to the beach to gather the fish. The fish which the boat people got were given to Kota fish mill. The fishes which got washed ashore due to the tear in the net were shared by the locals.

As the load of fish was more than that of the strength of the net, it got torn and nearly half the catch went back to the sea. 50 locals along with 16 fishermen of the boat pulled the net to the shore. The catch filled 54 boxes of 40 kg each. The total value of the catch is said to be Rs 1.25 lac.

According to the fishermen, this is the first time that they have got Sardine fish in such a huge quantity. They say that the fishes swim in groups as they get scared due to the sound made by the engines of the deep sea fishing boats. During such huge group movement, these fishes might have got washed ashore as they must have got entangled in a huge sea wave.
