Members of Parliaments (MPs) Selvam Adaikalanathan, N. Sivasakthi Anandan and K. Rajakuganeswaran joined members of the Federation of Mannar fishing coopertive in a protest march today against South Indian fishermen poaching in SriLankan seas, said sources from Mannar.

Selvam Adaikalanathan had previously pointed blame at the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) for indirectly aiding South Indian fishermen by allowing them to trespass into Sri Lankan waters to deplete marine resources, especially giant shrimps, impacting the livlihood of Mannar fishermen.

Increasing number of South Indian fishermen, with repleated resources along the waters Tamil Nadu, have been using the restrictions imposed on Sri Lankan fishermen on deep-sea fishing to their advantage. Now as the restrictions are released there have been incidents of friction between fishermen from both countries.
