Năm 2015, tỉnh Bình Thuận đã ban hành Quyết định 61, cấm tàu giã cào có công suất 150 mã lực trở lên hoạt động từ ngày 1/4 đến hết ngày 31/7 (mùa sinh sản), nhờ đó, nguồn lợi thủy sản sinh sôi phát triển.

THALVUPADU, Sri Lanka — Stanley Cruz, a fisher in this beachside village on the island of Mannar off Sri Lanka’s northwestern coast, stands with his bare feet in the sand, holding up a green net between his hands.

“This is the kind of net, you see. Last week, we lost many hundreds of these. Twelve of us fishers, when we went out to get them in the morning they were gone,” he says.

He points toward the waters behind him: the Palk Strait, a narrow body of water separating Sri Lanka from the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

“The setup is either one trawler or two trawlers running in tandem, dragging a huge net with very fine holes, scooping up fish of all sizes. Other than the fact that all sea creatures are caught and bycatches are discarded, the ecosystem along the sea floor is irreparably damaged,” Việt said.
