The local Putian Maritime Safety Administration of China has recently issued a notice regarding the fishing farms around NanRi Island.
The notice identifies the boundaries of the main farms in the area.
A circular, received by our local correspondents, can be found here.
Members should be aware that there are unauthorised and uncontrolled fishing farms outside the designated areas, specified in the circular. All vessels, navigating in the vicinity of Nanri Island, should exercise caution as neither the farms in the designated area nor the ones outside are properly marked with buoys, radar reflectors or lights.
The boundaries of the farms are also not displayed on the latest nautical charts.
