In Brief: Vietnamese anglers netted in Kampot

Twenty Vietnamese fishermen were detained briefly Tuesday by Kampot provincial authorities for fishing illegally in Cambodian waters. Lan Samon, chief of the Lok Fishery Community Protected Area, where the Vietnamese were illegally fishing, said this was the second time Vietnamese anglers were caught in the area. “We did not take legal action. We just educated them not to come back,” he said, adding that they were small-scale family fishermen.
