First consignment of fish has been shipped to Amsterdam today (22), after the ban lifted by European Union (EU), the Fisheries Ministry sources stated.

The European Commission decided to lift of the ban on fisheries exports from Sri Lanka to the European Union, stating that Sri Lanka now had a robust legal and policy framework to fight illegal fishing activities.

The Sri Lankan government said that it was facing a loss of over 100 million U.S. dollars per year because of the ban.

The European Union completely revoked the ban imposed on fisheries exports from Sri Lanka last week.
