Anqing warns crab-catchers not to block shipping channel

24 October 2012
Anqing maritime safety authorities are taking measures to prevent fishing boats from blocking the Yangtze shipping channel following an increased number of complaints from cargo barges, according to the Yangtze River Administration under the Ministry of Transport.

The current high season for crabs has seen many fishing vessels gathering in this section of the river, including near anchorage points and the main shipping channel. This has caused disputes and raised safety concerns. Anqing MSA said that a campaign had started from 10 October to educate the crab catchers on safety. People are encouraged to report any safety concerns involving fishing boats to the MSA. Furthermore, the frequency of patrols will be increased to spot trouble in good time.
