Deepening of fisheries jetties in Vadamaraadchi stopped

[TamilNet, Monday, 06 September 2010, 04:42 GMT]
Sri Lanka National Environment Commission (NEC) has stopped the deepening of the fisheries jetties in Vadamaraadchi saying prior permission had not been obtained from NEC. The deepening of the jetties had commenced after a long period. Fishermen societies in Vadamaraadchi said that they will gather fishermen to launch protest demonstrations unless Sri Lanka government finds a solution for the problem.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) had refused to permit deepening of the said jetties in areas from Valveddiththu’rai to Ma’nattkaadu on Vadamaraadchi coast during the war.

Deepening of some of the fisheries jetties in Vadamaraadchi had been begun during the peace period but tsunami had filled them with sand and stones.

As the number of fishing boats had increased greatly the jetties need to be deepened and broadened to make sufficient area for the boats to dock out and in.

SLA authorities in Vadamaraadchi too are not prepared to grant any concessions to the fishermen, fisheries society representatives said.
