Missing fishermen return safely in Vadamaraadchi

[TamilNet, Saturday, 09 August 2008, 05:26 GMT]
Eight fishermen fishing in Point Pedro Munai area in Vadamaraadchi Sea Friday morning in their four manually sailed catamarans were blown away by the strong winds on the stormy sea and had gone missing. A search was conducted in the afternoon and the missing fishermen in their catamarans were found and hauled back to the shore with much difficulty, fisheries society sources in Vadamaraadchi said.

Sri Lanka Armed Forces in Jaffna had prohibited the use of fiber glass boats fitted with out board motors besides allowing fishing only up to a 2 km stretch into the sea from the coast and that too during day time only.

This is the standing restriction imposed by the armed forces which has been in force for the last two years in Vadamaraadchi coastal areas.

The fishermen have to fight hard to row their catamarans during rain and stormy weather and very often get blown off with the wind.
