App for fishermen to be launched in Kerala

An app for fishermen in Kerala called E-Samudra was launched in the state at the end of February.

The app is supported on Android smartphones and has been developed after taking feedback from 50 fishermen.

The app will inform fishermen about weather conditions, sea level changes and the best fishing areas.

The app will help the officials to know which boats and ships are in the sea.

It will also alert fishermen when they are about to cross state borders and can be used to get information about the rates of fish in different markets.
