Ministry of Fisheries says the fine which is imposed on overseas fishing vessels that encroach the Sri Lankan waters will be increased to Rs. 150 million.

A Ministry spokesperson said this is still under discussion. He said it would minimize the bottom trawling adopted by those vessels.

He added that a final decision will be taken following a high-level fisheries sector discussion which commenced in New Delhi today (14).
