Fishermen’s demands for an increase in the fuel quota


Fishermen are requesting that the government increase their fuel quota as well as the fuel quota for three-wheelers.

They claim that the amount of kerosene provided by the rationing system is insufficient to carry out their duties.

Around 100 fishing boats and one-day vessels are fishing near the Tangalle and Oruvella fishing piers.

There are over 500 fishing families who rely on this.

Fishermen faced numerous challenges as a result of the fuel crisis.
