Illegal Fishing in Gabonese waters, seems to be taken really seriously....

Whilst visiting a friend in the Coastal town of Myumba, we saw these Chinese fishing vessels being held in the lagoon.  They will have to pay a very heavy fine to retrieve them.  They have crept across from the Congo, where they are allowed to do all the fishing they want....Here is an interesting link about the Gabon protected marine areas. Gabon Marine Protected Area
