Andaman Sea: Closed To Fishing For 3 Months

4,696 square kilometres of the Andaman Sea will be closed to fishing from April 1st until June 30th to allow the ocean and sea life some respite and rehabilitation.

The closed area covers parts of Phuket, Phangnga, Krabi and Trang provinces.

Although this is a great step towards ocean conservation, many would argue that allowing the recovery of sea life, purely to achieve higher fishing yields, is taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back.

In order to allow the ocean to truly recover, thrive, and help us fight climate change, we need to leave it alone completely and consider switching to an entirely plant-based diet. Fishing doesn’t just impact fish numbers, it also impacts other sea life and reduces the carbon sequestering potential of the reef and the ocean as a whole.
