The protest carried out by fishermen blocking a part of the Galle Road in the Hikkaduwa – Thotagamuwa area has been concluded.

They were demanding immediate steps be taken to locate the seven fishermen who had gone missing.

However, State Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Dilip Wedaarachchi yesterday said that all measures have been taken to locate the fishermen and that India had even provided a helicopter to carry out search operations.

Meanwhile, a group of officials from the Fisheries Ministry met with the protesting fisherfolk and assured that search operations will be continued.
