Marine National Park Headquarters cooperates with 8th Team, Fleet Branch, Coast Guard Administration, Ocean Affairs Council and South Penghu Team, 7th Special Police Corps on coastal patrols. Recently, the alliances co-op with Penghu County Government in banning violations and enhancing environmental conservation. They target at some unscrupulous fishermen who use air-propelled fish guns. They show up at nighttime, trespassing South Penghu Marine National Park to illegal fishing. Penghu County Government has been devoting itself into ocean protection and recovery. The government also supports South Penghu Marine National Park to strengthen environmental conservation, promoting original reservoir in the ocean.

 

On June 17th, fishery protection vessel Peng-sing owned by Agriculture and Fisheries Department and Police Department’s investigation team and the headquarters’ official vessel Nation Park II executed the “Protect the Ocean Project.” By patrolling at night, this project will enhance the ocean conservation and protect the marine ecosystem. As long as the weather condition is allowed for cruising, the investigation team will team up with Nation Park I and II to ban illegal fishing.

 

In the past, many violating vessels will approach the shallow reefs near the shore to hide from Peng-sing. However, Nation Park I and II have shallower drafts, reducing the blind side of law enforcement at sea. Any fishing boat or private boat (including raft) which use an air compressor, air hose (or scuba) to fish in the National Park is violating the National Park Act and Fisheries Act. Violators will be fined from 30,000 to 150,000 NTD, fishing gears and catch will also be forfeited. Please be reminded.
