  1. Fran Diaz Says:

    In the seas of the present day, fish are contaminated with a number of pollutants. Any industrial effluent released into the seas all over the world either directly or through rivers and other water ways will also pollute sea creatures & sea weeds, including fish. It would be a good idea to have a permanent body attached to the Ministry of Fisheries to monitor for pollutants/poisons in fish imported into Lanka or caught offshore here.
    Materials/lining used in cans for fish must be safe too.
