SLA bans drying fish in Northern shores

[TamilNet, Monday, 13 March 2006, 13:00 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Armed forces (SLA) prohibited fishermen from Kudathanai, Manatkadu regions in Vadamaradchi east Monday from drying their catch of seasonal sprats on the shores . The affected fishermen have lodged complaints with Jaffna Fisheries Union Consortium, said Fisheries Union officials.

Most fishermen are able to catch nearly 500 kg of sprats in the newly begun season of casting wide fishing nets from seaboards, officials said.

The fisher families will incur substantial financial loss unable to process the vast haul due to the ban, fisheries officials added.
