Fishing restrictions lifted in Trinco
Fishing restrictions in the Outer-harbour sea area in Trincomalee have been lifted with effect from today, Eastern Province Governor Mohan Wijewickrema said.
The decision to remove the fishing restrictions which had been in force to prevent LTTE activities in the Eastern sea, has been taken following a meeting in Trincomalee yesterday. Accordingly, fishermen are not required to obtain passes for fishing in the northern sea area. (Amadoru Amarajeewa)
