Fishing crafts will not be permitted to go out to sea without obtaining a ‘Mechanical Viability and Maintenance Certificate’ (MVMC), which will be issued when the craft is registered, a minister said.

Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Minister Rajitha Senaratne said that the decision had been made after discussions between the Minister and Navy chief Vice Admiral Tissara Smarasinghe.

Regulations are to be introduced to make it mandatory for fishermen to obtain an MVMC at the registration of their craft and check the engine to ensure the safety of the lives of the fishing crew and the craft before they leave the shores for fishing.

There are 3,500 multi day fishing craft and 17,500 mechanized one day boats in operation in Sri Lanka. (SAJ)

    This like the Emission Certificate for Motor Vehicles, some people will make lots of money by giving bogus certificates.

    With all these laws to abide by, will the fishermen be in a state of mind to fish? And as a reaction to it will we be able to eat fish in the future?

    But do we need such green horns in the govt?

    Point here is our dear minister wants to show some thing he is doing for the betterment of the country and he can also want to emphasize little that he is capable of running any ministry. Thats all.

    The authority must implement all laws and regulations, but, make sure the authority is doing it the right way. So many government employees (Quantity) but their quality of work is in doubt. (i.e. carrying the Elephant to death!)
