During the time of the ban, which is the breeding season of shellfish, organisations and inpiduals are not allowed to buy, transport, process and trade of these shellfish.
The provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has assigned the Fisheries Section to coordinate with agriculture and economic agencies in coastal districts and towns in informing local fishermen, ship owners and seafood traders about the ban.
The agriculture sector will cooperate with the border guard force and People’s Committees of coastal districts and towns to monitor the enforcement of the ban.
Also during the period from April 1 to July 31, trawlers of 150CV or more are also banned from operating in the province’s waters./.
