Dong Thap: Fishing in breeding season banned

Vietnam Plus –

Local authorities in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap will ban fishing in the breeding season from May to June to protect aquatic resources in the locality.

The move aims to protect the natural aquaculture areas for the future as said by a resident in An Binh A commune.

A report from the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said that illegal fishing using explosives and electrical shocks is still going on.
