Marine Environmental Baseline Information Network

Petroleum Resources Development Secretariat (PRDS) has initiated to establish a Marine Database with a view to defining mandatory environmental protection measures prior to future hydrocarbon exploration activities. The technical support is provided by National Aquatic Resource Research and Development Agency (NARA) to develop the database. The information on living and non living resources within the EEZ of Sri Lanka available at various locations including NARA over the years is compiled in to a database.
