Negombo has a large fishing industry and hundreds, if not thousands, of boats of all sizes leave the shores each day to fish in the Laccadive Sea or further afield.

Most are small day boats that come back the same day, with many of them offloading their catch along Negombo’s large beach front. The larger boats tend to spend at least a couple of weeks out fishing and it was these boats that had the larger hauls.

Turns out that most of these sharks had being transported here from southern Sri Lanka for the purpose of making Karawala, which is a Sri Lankan dried fish product used in curries or cooked by itself as a stir fry or side dish.
