Ecosystem off Chàm Islands recovers after COVID-19

Vice director of the MPA, Nguyễn Văn Vũ suggested that the islands reduce the number of visitors from a maximum of  三,000 to  一,000 each day to reduce pressure on the marine ecosystem.

He said the islands need a break for marine species and seafood resources to recover.

The islands often receive  五 tonnes of waste each day, which mostly was in-organic waste from tourists, not including waste water and fresh water consumption as well as seafood and forestry products.

According to the MPA, more than  二, 七00 groups of coral species had been planted at  一0 sites off the islands, and an area of  二,000sq.m of coral reef was developed following a coral reef restoration project in  二0 一 五- 一 七.

The reserve covers more than  三 三,000ha, including  一, 五00ha of tropical forests and  六, 七00ha of sea, featuring a wide range of marine fauna and flora.

The islands are already overloaded, with a fleet of  一 五 二 boats including  一 四 五 speed boats travelling between Cửa Đại Port in Hội An and the Islands.

A report said the rapid increase of speed boats and fishing vessels was the main reason for  六 六 per cent of sea grass off the islands being destroyed between  二00 九- 一 八.

The islands,  二0km off the coast of Hội An, which was recognised as a World Biosphere Reserve in  二00 九, is one of few places in Việt Nam successfully campaigning against plastic bags. — VNS
