Activists caution as EU ends ban on Thailand fishing industry

The third-largest exporter of seafood rejoices the end of ban as it was criticised for poor regulations and unsustainable practices.

    Thailand's fishing and seafood industry has been criticised for poor regulations, bad working conditions and unsustainable practices.

    The industry rejoiced when the European Commission lifted a "yellow card" warning, which was in place since 2015, earlier this month.

    However, despite corrective measures by the government, activists have expressed concern saying there's still a lot to be done.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
