Meanwhile, troops of the Coast Guard Region 3 Command have disseminated information among local fishermen about Vietnamese law, regulations while conducting fishing activities at sea, punishment for violations in the sector and the Vietnam Coast Guard Law. Also, troops have encouraged fishermen to fight against illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, and closely work with the coast guard force to firmly safeguard national sovereignty over sea and islands and prevent maritime crime.

These activities have contributed to strengthening the military-civilian solidarity and heightening local fishermen’s responsibilities in defending the Fatherland.

Secretary of the Con Dao district Party Committee Le Van Phong, underlined that thanks to close care of coast guards, local fishermen in Con Dao district have strictly complied with the regulations while fishing at sea. The gifts showed their sentiments towards local fishermen, helped them overcome their difficulties and gradually stabilized their life.
