Fisheries Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said Orders to cut the nets of Indian fishermen poaching in Sri Lanka’s waters are to be issued soon in a fresh bid to deal with illegal fishing,

He said the services of the Coast Guard would be sought to put the plan into action to discourage poaching in Sri Lanka’s waters.

The tough action is to be initiated after several previous attempts — including the arrest and detention of the boats — failed to control the intrusion of the Indian fishermen.
