Measures are being taken to setup 250 fish outlets throughout the island. The Fisheries Corporation said that 72 of them have already been inaugurated.
Fish is being sold through these outlets. Chairman of the Fisheries Corporation Mahil Senanayake said that a special unit has been setup to raid the outlets, in case fish is being sold at higher prices. In addition to these 72 outlets, 11 more outlets will be inaugurated in the next few days. The fisheries Corporation expects to open the total number of fish outlets before the end of this year.
