Encouraging Diversity And Building A Sustainable Businessg

Sri Lanka’s geographic location in the Indian Ocean, where marine life is abundant and provides a huge source of seafood and livelihood means to large communities; is clearly a blessing for the country, opines Timothy O’Reilly – Managing Director/Owner of Taprobane Seafoods (TSF).

Communities in the northern areas of Sri Lanka have been marginalized for over three decades and are just beginning to rebuild their lives along with a large part of Sri Lanka that will also add to the holistic development of the entire country.

Yet as Timothy O’Reilly discusses in ‘The Ernest Interview with Ernest Jacobs’, livelihoods of the northern fisher folk, the sustainable management of marine resources and both the maritime and economic sovereignty of Sri Lanka is in dire straits, as thousands of Indian trawlers persistently invade Sri Lankan waters every day.
