Bac Lieu tightens control over fishing activities

VTV.vn - In a bid to implement the Prime Minister's order to prevent Vietnamese vessels from fishing illegally in foreign waters, the Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu has taken drastic measures, which have proven to be effective.

This is a commendable effort after the EU recently issued a yellow card as a warning for Vietnamese seafood caught illegally.

Bac Lieu Province has firmly stated that any illegally fishing individuals and organisations will no longer be granted any licences for building new vessels and fishing. These efforts are expected to bring prestige back to Vietnamese seafood.
