The prices of fish have increased drastically in the past few days. Convener of the Central Fish Market in Peliyagoda, Bandula Siyambalaapitiya, said that the quantity of fish brought to the fish market has reduced by 50 percent.

Investigations revealed that fishermen not heading out to sea owing to the inclement weather, is a contributing factor to increasing prices.
