More determination required to fight against IUU fishing

Binh Dinh’s Vice Chairman Tran Chau on February 19 asked relevant bodies to show more determination in fighting against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

Among 3,300 fishing boats, which have the length of 15 meters or more, a total of 1,809 vessels were installed with the GPS devices, under the government’s No.26 Resolution.

Despite the province’s efforts in implementing various solutions in the execution of the EU’s recommendations to eliminate the IUU fishing, the local fishermen’s violation of foreign waters has seen no sign of stop.

According to the reports, 41 fishing boats, violating the waters of other countries between 2018 and 2019, were not allowed to operate again.

To bring the country closer to having the yellow card on its seafood exports lifted, Chau asked all relevant bodies to make all-out efforts in this issue.
