Fishing Industry Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is the main place for the fishing industry. It has a very big area for fishing and economic industry. Sri Lankan famous fish market is Negombo, Galle, Jaffna, and Tangalle. That for an ocean area of 500,000 square kilometers and a coastal area of 1700 km in addition to inland water bodies. Sri Lanka government is protecting this industry every day.

Fishing Industry also makes money for Sri Lanka. However, after the year 2017, we can saw big changes in the fishery industry. On May 19, 2017, the EU granted better access to the fishing market for exports under GSP +.

Total of 52 government approved fishing and processing facilities spread across the country. Sri Lankan fishing industry can expect a better future in exporting seafood and seafood-based products to the EU. This is spread throughout the country and it is a great honor for us.
