Inland fisheries development mooted in the North

Jun 18, 2010 12:13:48 PM - itnnews.lk

The Inland fishery industry in the North is to be improved. The main objective is to improve the livelihoods of the resettled civilians.

Around 200 thousand fingerlings have been released to three tanks including the Akkarayankulam main tank. This will provide an opportunity to provide an avenue of income to the fisher fraternity of Akkarayankulam.

Meanwhile, a Sathosa outlet has been opened in the Kilinochchi town to provide an opportunity for the resettled families in the North including Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu to purchase goods at reasonable prices. The opening of the outlet took place under the patronage of Minister Johnston Fernando, Deputy Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage and Duminda Dissanayake and Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa.
