NE fishermen asked to use radar reflector equipments in crafts in nights

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 August 2009, 19:28 GMT]
Fishermen who use traditional crafts such as catamaran, and other boats have been instructed by the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) to install radar select or radar reflect equipments during night fishing. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has come forward to allocate funds for the purchase of such equipments by the Department of Fisheries.

The Department of Fisheries said all fishermen who use traditional fishing crafts would be supplied with radar reflector equipments free of charge

SLN has said this order has been issued to ensure security in nights. Fishermen who use mechanized boats have also been asked to light their crafts in nights. The SLN said it would be easy to locate traditional fishing crafts in nights with the assistance of radars installed in SLN boats

The Department of Fisheries has already started installing radar reflector equipments in traditional fishing crafts now being used by fishermen in Trincomalee, Batticaloa and coastal villages in the NE.
