The Department of Fisheries and aquatic Resources (DFAR) of Sri Lanka with the support of Pelagokos Pvt Ltd adopted a simple yet successful method to encourage skippers and crew members on releasing sharks, turtles and marine mammals and reporting the same. Here skippers are required to record a video via the electronic log tablets or smartphones on live releasing of above species and to provide the same to DFAR soon after they land. As a reward DFAR provides a specially designed T-shirt to the skipper and crew members. Details of the Skippers who are frequently & actively involved in sending videos of by catch releasing are given below.
