Abstract

The team consider that the general marketing and postharvest handling of fish and fish products in Sri Lanka is efficient given the resource constraints. Conditions of under supply and high consumer demand promote competition. The fisheries sector is highly dynamic and responsive to changes in demand. Post-harvest losses in value, and quantity are minimal, though some issues of quality were identified.
