Sanya urges public to stop illegal angling on Sanya River
Sanya is urging the public to stop illegal angling activities on Sanya River, an activity which is causing great environmental concerns.
Many residents have complained that they have found an increasing number of anglers fishing at Yuchuan Bridge, Lingshui River Bridge, Ronggen Bridge and Jinjiling Bridge.
Most of them were middle to old-aged men and women. They usually captured the small young fish with fishing rods.
Some anglers said they did not know that the government has set up regulations banning angling on the city’s rivers.
Residents hope the local government can strictly implement the angling ban system so that everyone can obey the rules to ensure the sustainability of fish resources along the river.
The government has issued regulations to stop illegal angling and fishing operations along the riverbanks and under the bridges. Those who are found violating the rules will be warned or punished.
