Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Vaakarai in Batticaloa district imposed new restrictions on fishing in areas in Koa'ralaipattu North Regional Secretariat division which forbid fishermen taking food, and that if they go fishing in the evening they should return only next morning. SLA has also introduced a pass system in which all fishermen have to register their names at the SLA camp in Panichchangkea'ni camp when going out to, and on return from fishing, sources in Vaakarai said.

The fishermen living in Ka'ndaladi, Pannichchangkea'ni, Vaakarai Maththi, Ooriyankaddu, Paalcheanai and other areas in Koa'ralaipattu North are affected by these new restrictions, fisheries representatives said.

Meanwhile, SLA is to impose a new restriction allowing fishermen to fish in the sea and lagoon area for only 3 days per week.
