Thailand getting tough with rogue trawlers, says Fisheries Department
Strict implementation of the international Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA) is helping curb Thailand's notoriety as a hub for illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, according to the Fisheries Department.
Thailand recently detained five foreign fishing vessels and rejected some 400 tonnes of marine catch over suspicions of IUU fishing, said the department’s director-general Adisorn Promthep.
