Deputy PM asks for seriously punishing brokers for illegal fishing overseas


The Ministry of Public Security has been asked to seriously punish individuals and organisations working as brokers to bring Vietnamese fishing vessels and fishermen to overseas waters to illegally exploit aquatic resources.

It was directed by Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh, head of the National Steering Committee on Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing Prevention and Control, in document No.198/TB-VPCP issued by the Government Office on July 21.

The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers, the Vietnam Fisheries Society, and fisheries enterprises must seriously follow regulations on IUU fishing prevention, as well as stay away from buying, processing or exporting products with IUU fishing origin./.
