Indonesia to allow trawling despite overfishing fears
Indonesia will allow trawling in selected areas for the first time in 30 years despite concerns about overfishing, an official said Thursday. Trawling, in which boats tow long nets that scoop up everything in their path, would be permitted this year off four areas of Borneo island's east Kalimantan province, maritime ministry official Bambang Sutejo said. He dismissed concerns about overfishing but acknowledged that illegal trawling was already rampant in the area. "There will not be overfishing this time as we're only allowing small boats to trawl, and it's not allowed in other parts of Indonesia," he said, adding that legalising trawling would help fight illegal trawlers.
