The inland fishery of Sri Lanka has been essentially a capture fishery from major and medium scale irrigation reservoirs. However, small-sized (<100 ha) minor irrigation reservoirs are also frequent in the country. Naturally, these water bodies are incapable of supporting self-recruiting fisheries, but can be utilized to enhance the fish production significantly through development of culture-based fisheries (CBF), without causing impediment on their primary use.
