The 18th session of the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission will commence in Colombo on Sunday.

The inauguration function of this conference will be held at BMICH and the session will be held over five days.

Two hundred and fifty officials from 40 countries that carry out fishing activities in the Indian Ocean will participate in the session.

The focus of the session will be on maximizing the tuna resources in the ocean, and addressing illegal activity in the fisheries industry.

Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Rajitha Senaratne said that this session is of great importance to Sri Lanka, where the highest consumption of tuna fish is recorded.

This is the second time this commission is meeting in Colombo, the first time being in 2011.
