Fishing to be banned at Ha long Bay
Ha Long City authorities in Quang Ninh province will ban all kinds of fishing in Ha Long Bay's natural reserve sites as of next month.
Only authority-approved fishing and diving activities for tourism using traditional tools will be allowed. The move aims to boost the protection of local fishery sources, as well as the management and promotion of the UNESCO-recognised World Heritage Site.
In the first half of this year, Quang Ninh province welcomed 2.5 million foreign visitors.
