QUẢNG NINH – An interdisciplinary team of northern Quảng Ninh Province’s Hạ Long City and the city’s Aquaculture department has inspected the aquaculture exploitation activities on the bay and found six vessels illegally using electric shockers to catch fish.

Electric fish shockers have been banned due to their negative impact, such as destroying entire populations of marine creatures.

The vessels were given penalties and their banned catch tools were seized.

The team will continue strengthening inspection of vessels performing aquaculture exploitation to protect the environment of the famed bay. - VNS
