Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development, Mahinda Amaraweera said that the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development has completed the supply of Tab Computer (E LOG BOOK) to information on fishing at a cost of Rs 78 Million.

Under this program, E-book BOOK will be provided for multi-day fishing boats. Data on the fish caught by each multimodal fishing vessel according to international law according to international law should be computerized. Each country must provide information to the European Union, in order to prevent the recovery of fish resources in most countries. It is also important to protect the fish resources and prevent the mismanagement of the environment in the fishing industry.

Under the present Government of Sri Lanka, it is necessary to recognize this international fisheries law as an international recognition. Although the government of the European Union had imposed the ban on fishery exports during the past government, the then government did not take steps to implement these international laws.

However, the software used for using E- LOG BOOK has now been developed by the IT Department of the University of Colombo and will also provide training to the fishing community on the use of its software and E- LOG BOOK. The E- LOG BOOK will be distributed to the fisher community free of charge and arrangements have been made to distribute them in the near future, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said.
