Colombo (News 1st): The Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA) has decided to monitor the plastic usage on single and multi-day fishing trawlers. Fishermen take 500 to 1000 1 litre bottles when they head out to sea. These steps are being taken to protect ocean life.

Attention has been drawn to only permit the carrying of 5-litre containers to the ocean. The plan is set to be put into action together with the help of the Sri Lanka Coast Guard.
