Mawlamyine, November (18)
Following the military takeover, the military council failed to preserve the water resources in Mon State, which led to a surge in illegal fishing, the natural resource conservationists told Than Lwin Times.
However, the extinction of water resources increased as a result of the military council’s inaction against illegal fishing.
A water resource conservationist warns that if illegal fishing is not prevented as soon as possible, the country may face a serious water resource reduction problem in the near future.
Illegal fishing decreased under NLD administration due to the formation of inspection teams and arrests of illegal fishing with iron wire nets, but increased during the military council.
Fish resources are becoming scarce as a result of the regime’s departments and troops demanded money from illegal and unregulated fishing, granting them fishing permission.
In Mon state, there are more than 3,000 trawlers near and far from the coast, and each year, fishing yields hundreds of thousands of tons of fish. In Mon state, there are more than 3,000 trawlers near and far from the coast, and each year, fishing yields hundreds of thousands of tons of fish.
The amount of fish caught has decreased dramatically since there have been no preservation water resources since the military takeover, according to fishery businessmen.
