Rs. 05 million per each District to remove moss, floating fern and Salvinia in reservoirs

There are nearly 10 000 inland reservoirs in Sri Lanka and most of them are covered with floating ferns like Salvinia and Water Hyacinth.  

These weeds are hugely affecting the fish farming industry and Divisional Secretaries have informed that repeated complaints come from the inland fishing community that their fish harvest is drastically depleting, says Hon Mahinda Amaraweera

Therefore, the Minister mentioned that each District will be granted 05 million to remove invasive aquatic plants from reservoirs to make them more appropriate for fish cultivation. He also informed the District Secretaries to utilize the 05 million that have been granted to each District for fisheries livelihood development under the decisions arrived at the meeting of provincial fisheries ministers in case they have not been still utilized for the said projects.

Surface of the reservoirs being covered with Salvinia and Water Hyacinth tend to overflow even in a little shower and the fish fingerlings stocked in reservoirs go out of the reservoirs with the overflowing water. As a result, achieving desired targets of fish harvest becomes difficult and therefore Hon Minister advised the officials to use barrier nets to retain fish in high water seasons.
