Vhali Watcher: An app to set whale sharks free

Updated : May 30, 2019 08:37 AM IST

A new app allows fishers in Gujarat to easily document whale sharks that get caught in fishing nets.
Conservationists and fishers alike hope the app will speed up the compensation fishers receive for damaged nets.
However, fishers say the compensation, a maximum of 25,000 rupees ($360), should be increased to reflect the true loss of their revenue during their downtime without nets.
