Since 2011, 32 coastal communes and wards in Tuy Phuoc, Phu Cat, Phu My and Hoai Nhon districts and Quy Nhon city in Binh Dinh province have joined the movement, “All people participate in aquatic resource protection,” gaining positive achievements, Head of the Binh Dinh provincial Bureau of Aquatic Resources Exploitation and Protection, Mai Kim Thi said.
The Bureau has covered some expenses for communes and wards in implementing this movement, which focused on educational campaigns, managing the exploitation of aquatic, resources and marine environment, and ensuring vessel safety; at the same time resolutely preventing the use of banned fishing means such as dynamite and electricity to exploit seafood along the coastline and in lagoons.
On the other hand, the bureau also collaborated with localities around salt water lagoons to create and multiply the group and team models of “Co-managing aquatic resources” along Tra O lagoon, Phu My district, De Gi lagoon, Phu Cat district and Thi Nai lagoon, Tuy Phuong district and Quy Nhon town.
Dao Duy Hoi, Party Committee’s Secretary and Chairman of Tam Quan Bac commune’s People’s Committee, Hoai Nhon district, where aquatic exploitation is highly developed, said the “All people participate in aquatic resource protection” movement in the locality has become effective, with most people working in aquatic exploitation now aware of the importance of aquatic resource protection not only in the short-term, but also in the long-term. The management, exploitation, protection and development of aquatic resources is now carried out in a sustainable manner in the localities.
Binh Dinh province’s building and expanding the “All people participate in aquatic resource protection” movement and the model of “Co-managing aquatic resources” teams and groups have contributed to raising the awareness and responsibility of the public in protecting and developing aquatic resources along the coastline, on islands and in lagoons in line with the province’s orientation of sustainable aquatic exploitation and development.
