A number of fishery harbours in Sri Lanka is to be developed under the Green Harbour concept
The government has decided to develop several fishery harbours as Green Harbours out of the existing 20 fishery harbours of Sri Lanka. This is decided to be implemented expeditiously since the existing harbours remain in the same situation they were established decades ago and therefore they have become unattractive and at the same time they fail in facilitating fishers with a qualitative and efficient service.    

Accordingly, the second phase of developing the Suduwella fishery harbour in Matara as a Green Harbour amounting to a cost of 200 millions was initiated under the guidance of Hon. Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development. This year, the government has allocated 250 millions for the purpose of developing fishery harbours in Sri Lanka under the Green Harbour concept.

All the selected Fishery harbours will be developed as fully facilitated fishery harbours with infrastructure. Many countries in the world at present adopt the Green Harbour Concept and measures have been taken to implement it in Sri Lanka too.
