HCM CITY (VNS) — The HCM City People's Committee has asked the Ministry of Justice and agencies concerned to study and propose stricter measures against illegal fishing along the Tau Hu-Ben Nghe, Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe, and Tan Hoa-Lo Gom canals.

Agencies concerned should also take measures to raise residents' awareness about preventing pollution and protecting aquatic life.

Although warning signs have been installed, hundreds of people fish along the three canals every day. While fishing is a leisure activity for most of them, some others sell their catch.

The city does not have any legal regulation to penalise illegal fishing along canals. — VNS
