A fleet of 80 traditional fishing boats left Wasukri Beach in Pattani's Sai Buri district on Tuesday morning to install “fish house” structures, made by bamboo, coconut-palm leaf stalk and natural materials, to protect small fish and marine life.

The “fish house” structures were dropped in 10-metre deep waters off the coast along with 6,400 decommissioned electrical insulators made of ceramic, that were donated by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, to serve as artificial coral.

The activity, aimed to help rehabilitate marine life resources along the coast, was hosted by the Internal Security Operations Command Region 4’s Forward Command to celebrate His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn's 65th birthday on July 28.
