Fishy Anglers: Fishing ban nets multiple offenders

FISHY ANGLERS
Authorities confiscated more than a million metres of illegal fishnets, 5,000 electrodes used for electrofishing and 4,000 illegal fish traps between June and the start of October, according to Nao Thuok, director of the Fisheries Administration in the Ministry of Agriculture. This year’s commercial fishing season is set to open across the country today after a three-month ban, which allows for the renewal of fish stocks. Fishing in Kandal, Takeo and Kampong Speu provinces will be delayed until early November because of later spawning times. Sixty people were also sent to court on illegal fishing charges during the 2009 off-season, Nao Thuok said.
