About Topic: 

 The fishworkers of Mumbai carry out subsistence and livelihood activity on a narrow strip of land and water which constitutes the coast. Coastal infrastructure projects in the foreshore and near shore areas of this region pose a threat to the customary rights and traditional occupations of the fisherfolk, as well as to coastal ecosystems.
