Fishing ban

A three-month fishing ban on the Pearl River and a section of the Yangtze River has taken effect.

The annual fishing ban is meant to protect fishery resources and maintain an ecological balance.

Local governments are allowed to make allowances to certian fishermen affected by the ban.
 
Large-scale activities will be organized to release fish fry into the two rivers during the moratorium in order to boost aquatic resources.
