Mon, May 25, 2020, 10:12 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 25, Colombo: The Department of Fisheries has decided to permit small scale fishing boats to engage in fishing activities for small fishermen from today (25).

The Fisheries Department further stated that measures will be taken to provide the relevant permits through the Regional Fisheries Offices

The Fisheries Department has decided not to grant permission for small fishing vessels to venture into the sea due to the recent adverse weather conditions.

The Department has decided to grant permission for fishing activities as the weather conditions have recovered to a certain extent.

However, the Meteorology Department cautioned that the deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Kankasanthurai via Mannar and from Matara to Pottuvil via Hambantota can be rough at times. The other sea areas around the island can be fairly rough at times.

Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant in this regards as strong gusty winds (up to 70-80 kmph) and very rough seas can be expected temporarily during thundershowers.
