[TamilNet, Wednesday, 3 February 2010 13:20 No Comment]

Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) banned night fishing in Mannaar Sea from Monday, fisheries sources in Mannaar said. For the last two months ban on night fishing was lifted due to the Sri Lanka’s presidential election. Mannaar fishermen will face severe economic hardship as day time fishing will not yield sufficient catch to support day-to-day expenses, sources added.

Fishermen have been allowed to fish from six in morning till six in the evening.
