Fishing offences in the Anlong Kampi Irrawaddy dolphin conservation area are still happening despite a ban, the Kampi fishing community said.
Most fish poachers use electric shock devices with power connected to their nets to catch fish in deep water, a practice that affects rare and endangered fish and dolphins.
Kampi fishing community chief Thon Narong told The Post on Monday (Aug 24) that illegal fishing on a large scale must be stopped. Investigations also need to be launched to catch offenders who use illegal devices in prohibited areas.
