(Seychelles Nation 20.5.21): Eight Chinese fishing vessels have been grounded at Port Victoria after they illegally anchored themselves in our territorial waters on Friday last week. Last Friday authorities found out there were several ships who weren’t identifiable anchored near Providence island.

President Ramkalawan has instructed the Minister for Agriculture, Environment and Climate Change, Flavien Joubert, to order an immediate stop on all works where marshes are being reclaimed and requested those who have blocked marshes to restore them in order to prevent further flooding.
