Decline In Fish Prices

Dec 27, 2010 7:33:44 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne says that local fish prices have seen a 20 percent reduction between 2009 and 2010.

However, he said that there has been a slight increase in the price of fish in the last few weeks.

Senaratne told a press conference that the local fish prices had increased in the last few weeks due to a decline in the amount of fish caught by local fishermen.

He said that a majority of the fishermen did not go fishing during holiday season, as they are Christians.
