The Norwegian Embassy in Colombo says Norway has agreed to provide support to Sri Lanka to conduct a stock assessment of marine resources.

The Norwegian research vessel Dr Fridtjof Nansen will arrive in Sri Lanka next year for the purpose.

This is part of the technical and institutional cooperation on fisheries between Norway and Sri Lanka, which was endorsed by the top level political authorities of the two countries.

The aim of the planned survey is to know the current status of marine resources including fish stocks and to investigate stocks of unexploited/ underutilized fishery resources on the continental shelf and slope.
