Colombo:  At least 23 Indian fishermen were arrested in Sri Lanka for poaching in the country's waters, the media reported on Sunday.

The fishermen were arrested by Sri Lankan navy in the seas off the town of Mannar and were handed over to the police, Xinhua news agency reported.

The police said that the navy handed over the fishermen and three boats to them in Mannar.

The fishermen are between the age of 15 and 56, the police said. They will be produced before a court on Sunday.

Sri Lankan navy frequently arrests Indian fishermen for poaching as there is a better catch in the island nation's waters. Both the countries are looking at ways to address the issue of fishermen.
