National Fisheries Solidarity (NAFSO) of Sri Lanka

NAFSO was selected for its outstanding and practical initiative in promoting and disseminating the Code. In particular, this NGO hastaken very practical steps to translate the Code into the Sinhala language, to print it and distribute it. In addition, to ensure the application of the Code, NAFSO organized a series of meetings in fishing communities thereby promoting a better understanding of various aspects of the Code among poor, small scale fishing communities. Without this work, it is highly likely that these largely illiterate fishing communities would not have had access to the Code.
