Compasses have been provided to fishermen who venture into deep seas, and they are able find out the directions and reach their home shores safely, said the President of Fishermen Federation, T.Antony.
Light Houses were in place before the war and they had been destroyed in the war. In those days Light Houses operated at Mulaitheevu, Trincomalee and Point Pedro.They were located at an interval of around 100 Kilometers.
Although requests were made after the resettlement, for the construction of Light Houses, no action had been taken.
However we have provided Compasses and they could reach their home ports , he said
