Fisheries


The fishing industry engages many people in the District, due to the vast extent of its sea area and the large number of lagoons situated along the coast. As with crops cultivated in the District,there is the opportunity for divergence in the fishing industry too Prawn farming, for example, offers big potential. Here there is ample opportunity for the enterprising investor to provide ancillary services to the industry such as canning plants,ice plants and boat yards.In Jaffna District there is a tremendous scope for aquaculture,a sector that has yet to be seriously exploited
