Policy Development Workshop

Marine fishing has a long tradition in Sri Lanka that goes back to over two thousand years. It was one of the most important economic activities of the coastal communities. As the marine resources are being depleted or over exploited, the resources have to be utilized in a sustainable manner.The Government of Sri Lank has identified the need for formulation of a new fisheries and aquatic policy, which is expected to build good investments in the fisheries sector and expand the overseas markets for fisheries and aquaculture products. Therefore, the Government of Sri Lanka submitted a proposal to seek technical assistance from Norway.Several workshops wee held with the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development (MFARD) as the focal point. . In this regard, another workshop was held at national Aquatic Resources Research and Development Agency (NARA) from 22-24th May 2017, with Norway and Sri Lankan experts including NARA Scientists to review and improve the policy draft prepared at the previous workshops.
