Fish & Fisheries Products
As an island with a territorial sea of 21,500 km2 and a coastline of 1340 km, Sri Lanka has a rich supply of fish and seafood. The fishing industry plays an important role in Sri Lanka’s Social and Economic sectors and the country is home to a large fisheries community, who reside along the coastline. The country combines new technology with traditional knowledge and skills in maintaining quality and sustainability in the fishing industry.
Today, Sri Lanka has emerged as a quality fish and seafood exporter, supplying predominantly yellowfin and bigeye tuna species, crabs, prawns, and molluscs species to international markets. Adherence to the latest technology in product development, processing, and packaging techniques ensures that Sri Lankan fish and seafood products that reach the international market are superior in quality, taste and texture.
