The Thai Sea Watch Association has given agro giant Charoen Pokphand (CP) just three months to stop buying young fish to incorporate into animal feed. The group held a rally outside CP headquarters in Bangkok, where it said that the company’s use of trash fish made it responsible for the destruction of Thailand\'s marine environment.
Thai Sea Watch Association chairman Banjong Nasae led about 60 fishermen from southern coastal provinces and civic group representatives. The group staged a rally in front of CP headquarters on Silom Road where they issued the ultimatum.
The network demanded CP purchase by-products from fish processing factories, and leave young fish to mature and regenerate.
