Harbors & Fishing

Harbors & Fishing

Fish which is harvested from Indian Ocean cannot be matched by any other in quality and taste, it’s named as Worlds Best Ocean with less contamination. Due to Sri Lankan geological and weather condition, presence of quality fish in our sea is unlimited. Clean and deep water and plenty of small fish and food availability and good climate condition for breeding are main reasons for this. So, fishing harbors are situated all over Sri Lanka and supply is vast. We in Sri Lanka have two ways of fishing. Long Line fishing by ships (More than 59 ft are considered as ships) timing 1 to 3 months, big boats (41 to 59 ft) timing 1 to 3 weeks. Hand Line by big boats, small boats (40 ft) timing 2 days to 1 week. Mostly all the long liners preserve fish in Chill bath (Water tanks with chill water). Short time fish is preserved by block ice.
