Fishermen in the Kalpitiya peninsula staged a demonstration on Sunday, protesting against the use of banned nets and equipment by large scale fisheries operators.

The fishermen protested against 53 licence holders who are using permits issued by the government and are catching fish using illegal methods.

The fishermen engaged in a token strike since Saturday evening and raised black flags on their boats, at piers and in their villages.
