Onon River Basin fishing clubs are joining to create information network
The fishermen's club have completed a lot of work for the past year. They have promoted local residents on the dangers of illegal fishing, while patrolling along the river banks. As a result, many cases have been identified. Despite the fact that they are working on reducing illegal fishing, they say that fish club members are concerned about non declined violations. Therefore, they all agreed to establish a information network for the purpose of detecting environmental crimes. The first step was to find reliable whistleblowers and discuss their compensation.
Additionally, members of Onon River Basin fishing clubs set-up signs along the Onon and Balj Rivers fishing grounds. Members of the fish club said they are confident they will improve the understanding of the fishing region. WWF-Mongolia experts not only met club members, they did training for local police and rangers on how to obtain fishing permission via online (EZAGAS.MN). This electronic permission system is being tested by WWF-Mongolia on Onon River.
