Nine fishermen arrested over electrofishing!

The Coast Guards had arrested nine fishermen who were engaged in electrofishing this morning (10) where electricity is used to stun fish that are then collected using dip nets or seines.

The arrested fishermen are residents of Beruwela.

Six unlicensed fishing boats used for this purpose were also taken into custody.

Electrofishing is banned because it also destroys endangered and rare marine species.

The suspects are to be handed over to the Beruwala Fisheries Inspector’s Office.
