NDO/VNA—A great deal of young shrimp and fish were released into the sea and rivers on March 31 in different provinces across Vietnam to regenerate aquatic resources.

Over one million shrimp were released into the sea at Ninh Chu Fishing Port in Ninh Hai District in the south-central province of Ninh Thuan, while the central province of Thanh Hoa set free one tonne of fry into Ma River. The Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh released about 1.4 million young shrimp, crabs and fry into the wild.

The move aims to supplement aquatic resources while celebrating the 58th anniversary of Vietnam Fisheries Day (April 1, 1959 – April 1, 2017) and an Action Month for protecting coastal aquatic resources (running through May 15).

It also aimed to raise public awareness of the legal regulations on aquatic resources and the role of resources preservation for sustainable fisheries.

Many measures have been applied to protect and develop aquatic stocks, such as using appropriate fishing nets and not using explosive and electrical impulses, among others.
