Gimme Shelter

THAILAND. Similan Islands National Marine Park, Phangna Province. March 29th, 2013. Policing the appropriate catch limits and boundaries for the local fishing fleets is a serious issue. Here a number of fishing boats shelter at a popular tourist island nicknamed ‘Sail Rock’ within the main Marine Sanctuary. There is a three-mile radius ‘no take’ zone around the marine park, which officials struggle to enforce.
