Sri Lankan fish exports to EU increase after ban

Sri Lankan fish exports to the European Union have increased by over 45% since the EU lifting the 2015 ban, Colombo Page reports. 

Over 18,262 metric tons of fish were exported to the EU from January to September this year, totally to Rs. 28.685 billion. 

Sri Lanka lost around Rs 18 billion during the ban, which was lifted on June 22, 2016. 

The ban was imposed in January 2015 by the EU for Sri Lanka's failure to comply with international and regional fisheries rules.
