CFC to implement a new mechanism

Ceylon Fisheries Corporation has decided to implement a new mechanism to provide high quality fish at a fair price for the public.
 
This decision had been taken at a meeting held recently under the patronage of State Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Dilip Wedaarachchi at the Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Ministry.  
 
The State Minister said that under the new mechanism, the CFC will purchase fish directly from the fishermen. As a result of that the CFC would be able to save large amount of money spends for the mediators.
 
During the meeting it was revealed that some mediators used to get Rs 30 to 40 per a kilo of fish as their commission.
 
The State Minister has instructed relevant authorities to direct officials to monitor the new procedure and also to take necessary measures to prevent fraud and corruption.
