Improvements to the fishery industry in the North East

Jun 2, 2010 4:01:45 AM - itnnews.lk

A conducive environment now prevails in the fishery industry with the total liberation of the North and East from terrorism. Minister Rajitha Senaratna said they planned to capitalize on this situation.

Accordingly it is hoped to increase the fish harvest ten fold within the next six years. The Government had already taken the required initiatives to develop the fishery industry in the North and East. The nutritional level of the people can also be improved by uplifting the fishery industry. The Minister expressed these views during a discussion with Patrick Evers, representative of the Asian Region of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
