The Nation reports that the writers of the Bill say the new laws will bring the conditions on fishing vessels up to par with the C188 Work in Fishing Convention. The new law will apply to large commercial vessels, not smaller fishing operations. Only fishing vessels that go out to sea for more than three days at a time and exceed 26.5 metres in length, or those that venture beyond Thai waters for three days will be subject to the law.
