The new Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) control sub-centre in front of Rakhine State Fisheries Department was formally opened at 9 am on 3 January 2021. U Thet Oo, head of Rakhine State Fisheries Department, explained the VMS control sub-centre and related matters at the opening ceremony.
Rakhine State Minister for Finance, Tax, Planning and Commerce U Kyaw Aye Thein, State Minister for Agriculture, Livestock, Forest and Mines U Kyaw Lwin and State Fisheries Department head U Thet Oo formally inaugurated the sub-centre by cutting the ceremonial ribbon and sprinkling scented water on the signboard.
Afterwards, the state ministers and officials concerned inspected the VMS control sub-centre.
The sub-centre is aimed at conducting surveillance of inshore fishing vessels in Rakhine fishing block and restricted areas — A1 and A2, to ensure that the vessels comply with vessels monitoring rules set by the Fisheries Department.
The department found 74 vessels entered the restricted areas. The Rakhine State department has warned four boats and has taken actions against 12 vessels violating the rules. Each ship is fined K2 million, and they are suspended licence for two months respectively.—Tin Tun (IPRD) (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
