PHUKET: A Korean man suspected of being an illegal tour guide was arrested yesterday for feeding fish at Batok Bay, Koh Racha Yai.

 

Tour guide and marine conservationist “Seaman Freeman, or Mr Kanchit Klingklip, 47, yesterday (July 28) posted in the “Healthy Reefs” LINE group video clips and photos showing a Korean man illegally feeding fish underwater at Batok Bay, Koh Racha Yai.

 

The man, nicknamed ‘Nam’ aged between 30-40 years, was with two women when the incident occurred, but it appears that he only led them out to the sea and that they did not partake in the fish feeding. Nam fed the fish alone.

Honest question: Is it also illegal to feed fish in rivers in front of temples?

If so, I would like to report the whole population of Thailand to the police......

This country really has it's priorities skewed when it comes to tourism. They let the locals maim and kill their guests with unsafe practices yet feeding the fish is a major crime.

You can't take Thailand seriously. They grey bureaucracy is killing the place.

Could this displeasure be extended to people who feed pigeons and soi dogs at least fish don't bother people.

Correct, in snorkeling and diving areas you can not feed the fish.

I imagine they will throw the book at him. It is after all a foreigner and a victimless crime.

I believe not. The issue here is related to the fact that it is a marine national park.

The Asians, in this case a Korean, have a better understanding of ways to resolve issues than foreigners from more rule-based societies. So, it is less likely there will be any book-throwing, more likely some grovelling and paying.

Emphasis on the 'paying'.

Conservation activists in general strongly disagree with these shark feeding activities.

Meanwhile, break ins of houses don't get investigated unless a "reward" is paid, tourists get assaulted and threatened by tuk tuk drivers on a daily basis etc. etc.

 

Heaven forbid authorities ever get their priorities sorted out.

So the department of marine resources should send their people to Patong or some other place to, as you allege, stop the threatening tuktuk drivers.
