(seafood.vasep.com.vn) The PM has sent official telegram No. 732/CD-TTg on prevention, reduction and stopping of infringements by Vietnamese fishing vessels and fishermen regarding illegal fishing in foreign countries’ waters.
The telegram of 28 May clearly indicated that over the recent years, line-ministries and localities have strongly implemented Directive No. 689/CT-TTg of 18/5/2010 of the Prime Minister on some measures to stop and reduce the incidents of Vietnamese vessels and fishermen being seized by foreign countries, thus the situation of illegal fishing by our fishing vessels and fishermen in foreign countries’ waters has decreased.
However, from late 2015 up to now, the situation of violations by fishing vessels and fishermen has surged again with complicated developments, especially in the provinces of Quang Ngai, Kien Giang, Ca Mau, Binh Dinh, Ba Ria – Vung Tau, Binh Thuan, Ben Tre, Tien Giang, leading to damaged image of Vietnam in international arena, negatively affecting fishery export of Vietnam to international market.
In an effort to stop, decrease and put an end to the above situation, the PM requested line-ministries and localities to concentrate on handling the following urgent tasks.
