QUANG BINH (VNS) — The province's seafood resource protection department released 24kg of juvenile lobsters into the ocean yesterday afternoon, in an attempt to save the crustaceans from illegal traders.
Earlier, the department in collaboration with the local traffic police stopped a truck, travelling on National Highway 1A from the southern central province of Ninh Thuan, and found 24kg or about 1,400 lobsters being illegally transported.
There's a ban on young lobster fishing to protect the species. All lobsters seized from the truck were in good condition when they were released into the ocean. — VNS
