Palau Boat Bust

Palau Boat Bust

In this photo taken Wednesday, June 10, 2015 and released by the Government of the Republic of Palau, Vietnamese fishermen sit on their fishing ship anchored at the Marine Law Enforcement Division Port in Koror, Palau after being caught fishing illegally in the waters of the country. The tiny Pacific nation of Palau, fighting a rising tide of illegal fishing in its waters, has set fire to four boats of Vietnamese caught poaching sea cucumbers and other marine life in its waters. Palau's president, Tommy Remengesau Jr., said the boats were burned Friday morning, June 12, 2015. He hopes to turn most of the island nation's territorial waters into a national marine sanctuary, banning commercial fishing and exports apart from limited areas to be used by domestic fishermen and tourists.
