PHUKET: -- The Phuket Fisheries Department launched an e-licencing system on April 1 aimed at regulating local fishing operations in order to sustain fish stocks by limiting commercial fishing in the province.

The department has also warned operators of commercial fishing vessels to renew their licences by the end of the month or face stiff penatlies.

“The Fisheries Act 2015 states that commercial fishing operations have to get new two-year licenses for the period April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2018,” said Yosathon Chaleewan of the Phuket Muang District’s Fisheries Office at a meeting held with commercial fishing operators at the Sapan Pla fishing port in Rassada on April 1.
