Panaji: AHOY Marina, the project proponent of proposed marina at Nauxi has said that they are ready to withdraw the proposal if the villagers points out genuine flaws in it.

The public hearing on the project, to be conducted by Goa State Pollution Control Board (GPSCB) is scheduled on November 2. The villagers and NGOs have opposed the move to set up marina, stating it will affect their traditional fishing activity and also the ecology and marine life.

Addressing press conference, AHOY Marina director Arun Dua said that he is ready to drop the project if the people, who are opposing the Marina, are able to convince and point out genuine flaws and concerns with regards to the project.

“We are open for talks and dialogues with the villagers. We are ready to address their concern,” he said.

Dua said that proposed marina is a blue green enterprise, compatible to coastal environment and has no discharge or discard. “I can assure you that we are not going to do anything that will harm the environment, ecology or marine life,” he said.
