Ice boxes are a huge benefit for the fishermen to return with fresh fish after a long day´s work. The government provide 50% subsidy towards the cost of ice boxes to help them increase their income. When the fish is stored in ice It keeps fresh for at least two days and these coastal communities from India and Sri Lanka can sell them on far areas and get better prices.

This is one of a series of thirteen films profiling some of the micro projects linked to a project entitled "Capacity Challenges in Post-crisis and Transitional Situations… . India and Sri Lanka"
