The Sri Lanka Navy today took into custody 14 Indian fishermen and three trawlers for allegedly poaching in Sri Lankan waters off Talaimannar, Navy Spokesman Indika Silva said.

“The fourteen fishermen were arrested ten nautical miles off - Talaimannar at 5.00 p.m. yesterday,” he said and added that they will be handed over to the Mannar Fisheries Department.

Meanwhile, Indian media reported that 15 Indian fishermen were arrested near Katchchathivu for allegedly poaching in Sri Lanka's waters.

It said that several fishermen had gone out fishing in 734 boats but because of lack of fish they had crossed over to Sri Lankan waters. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Most of the Tamilnadu fishermen are not poor people. They are the big scale businessmen who use large ships to catch fish in Sri Lankan waters and destroying the sea floor by using harmful nets. Asking for permission to fish in our waters as they have finished the fish in their area is ridiculous. The stand taken by the Sri Lankan minister is correct. How dare they challenge his statements. We stand by him. They should find some other place to find fish. May be deep sea. Not shallow waters around Sri Lanka.
