Association de citoyens qui défendent l'environnement maritime

 

 

Many thanks to our watchman Alain Louis B from the Association MOR GLAZ for bringing us these pictures which well illustrate the existing maritime's worlds...

These pictures of fishermen, taken in Cat Ba Island ( Halong Bay -Northern Vietnam) are quite explicit: trawlers going back to seek a shelter. On some of them we can see accomodations on board and we can easily imagine the living conditions of the Vietnamese' seafarers.

In the same area, around 1000 licences of fish farms have been issued. But their estimated number is significantly higher (3000!). So we can imagine the consequences for local population in terms of level of pollution, living conditions and hygiene !!
