Mobile phone service to warn fishermen of territorial limits

Feb 20, 2011 3:07:20 AM - itnnews.lk

Plans are afoot for the introduction of mobile phones for fishermen to identify the territorial limits.

Special attention has been directed to the introduction of new technology for the fishermen to clearly identify the territorial limits between Sri Lanka and India. As an initial measure it is planned to introduce a technology to the fishermen to identify the limits. It will release a signal if the boundary had been crossed.  In the past few days many issues surfaced with Indian fishermen straying into Sri Lankan territorial waters. Various other options are also being studied as a solution to this problem.
