Introducing digital technology to 20 main Fishery Harbours of Sri Lanka
 
 
The Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development has taken measures to introduce digital technology to the 20 main Fishery Harbours of the country. Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development, Hon. Mahinda Amaraweera had given instructions to the Ceylon Fishery Harbours Corporation for the implementation of the programme and consequently the first stage of this programme was inaugurated at Mirissa Fishery Harbour at Matara District. Accordingly, 05 Fishery Harbours including the Fishery Harbours of Mirissa, Suduwella and Dikkowita were added to the chain of Fishery Harbours with Digital Technology.

The programme aims to receive information through satellite technology about the fishers leaving the harbor for daily fishing and to check whether they are accessing to a maritime boundary of another state. At the same time, providing protection to the fishers at sea is also intended by this programme. In discharging the functions of Fishery Harbours and their staff more transparently and efficiently, the Digital Harbour Project would be of immense.
