Let us Proudly Commemorate International Year of Small Scale Fisheries & Aquiculture - 2022

Poster campaign against permit of Chinese vessels to fish in close by waters

Poster campaign were conducted against providing permits to Chinese vessels to fish in common fishing grounds of India, Sri Lanka and Maldives and harbor facilities developed for the people of Sri Lanka by their tax money. Sri Lankan government has permitted Chinese Fishing company to use harbor facilities to get fulfilled every requirement of the vessels including unloading of the production.
Government says that, these permit are only for fish in international waters and use the harbor facilities to export the production of those Chinese vessels. .
Fisher people are arguing that, these vessels will extract the resources in the EEZ since the government still do not have proper monitoring system. In the other hand fishing grounds that are using by the India and Sri Lanka for tuna fishery directly threatens by the Chinese vessels.

Through the poster, asking the government to cancel the permit given to the Chinese Company for fishing in our fishing zone and use of harbor facilities for unloading the production.
