Ninh Thuan (VNA) – A great deal of young shrimps and fish were released into sea and river on March 31 in different provinces across Vietnam to regenerate aquatic resources.

Over one million shrimps were released into sea at Ninh Chu fishing port in Ninh Hai District, the south central province of Ninh Thuan, while the central province of Thanh Hoa set free one tonne of fry into Ma River. The Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh released about 1.4 million young shrimps, crabs and fry into the wild.

The move aims to provide more supplements for aquatic resources while celebrating 58th anniversary of the Vietnam Fisheries Day (April 1, 1959 – April 1, 2017) and Action Month for protecting coastal aquatic resources (running through May 15).

It also aimed to raise public awareness of legal regulations on aquatic resources and the role of resources preservation for sustainable fisheries.

Many measures have been applied to protect and develop aquatic stocks such as using appropriate fishing nets and not using explosive and electrical impulses, among others.-VNA
