Seafood giant supports Thai sustainable fishing activity



Seafood giant Thai Union Group Public Co. Ltd recently sponsored the Bangson Fishing Games, an annual event that creates awareness in the community about sustainable marine resources management.


The Games, held in the Bangson sub-district of Chumphon province, also promotes sustainable fishing methods as well as eco-tourism, which helps generate income for the local community.


Thai Union Chief Financial Officer Joerg Ayrle was among the participants in the Bangson Fishing Games, which he said "is part of Thai Union's commitment to promoting good jobs, economic growth and life below water in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals".


Somchoke Punrat, president of the Bangson tourism enterprise network, said that the private sector, including Thai Union, has helped enhance the natural resource management of Bangson.


"We have worked closely with Thai Union for four years. We have worked together in seafood and marine animal data management and natural resources. It is really good that Thai Union recognizes the importance of natural resources and sustainable sources of food in Chumphon" Somchoke said.
