QUY NHON — Southern central Binh Dinh Province's authorities will experimentally install a system of fishing equipment to prevent sharks from entering Quy Nhon Beach over the next three days.
According to the provincial Department of Aquatic Products' Exploitation and Protection, the system includes 200-metre special nets which will be set up alternately near areas from the Nin Tho Strait to Trung Beach to prevent sharks from attacking swimmers.
