Stop encroahing our fishing grounds

About 500 inshore fishermen in Penang have signed a petition asking the government to extend the fishing ground radius from five to twelve nautical miles, allowing them more chances of improving their catch.

They said that with the encroachment by commercial trawlers in their current fishing grounds, it is difficult to make ends meet. Several inshore fishermen relate their views and bad experiences with commercial trawlers at sea.
