Fisheries Ministry refutes the reports to the effect that Chinese fishing trawlers carry out fishing activities illegally within Sri Lanka’s sea limits.

These reports said that at certain times Chinese fishing trawlers engage in fishing activities by entering within the Sri Lankan sea limits.

The Deputy Minister said that the Chinese had been granted permition to carry out fishing activities only within the international sea boundaries.
