Fisheries Minister K. Babu said, "These marine ambulances have become very essential in the wake of numerous reports of our fishermen getting injured due to the vagaries of the rough sea and also due to accidents that occur in the middle of the sea."

Sources in the fisheries department said, "These marine ambulances would be stationed in three of the major fishing centers in the state. Each of these marine vessels would be fitted with state-of-the-art medical emergency systems for giving immediate medical assistance, besides a kitchen and toilets."
