Color-coded sails for Jaffna fishing boats

[TamilNet, Saturday, 04 September 1999, 23:16 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army has relaxed a ban on using sails on fishing boats in Gurunakar, Paashayoor, Kolumbuththurai seas in Jaffna with effect from today, September 4, said sources. However, the fishermen will have to use sails with the colour assigned to them by the army, added sources.

The decision was taken at a meeting between the Sri Lanka Army officials and the members of the Fishermen's Co-Operative Organisation at 51-2 Brigade Head Quarters situated at Gnanams Guest House in the town yesterday.

The ban was introduced on May 1.

However, the SLA officers told the fishermen that they cannot go fishing in the seas of Kalmunai and Poovarasanthivu near Pooneryn, further south of peninsula.

The SLA has warned the fishermen that their fishing licences will be withdrawn if the regulations were not followed.
