The Bay of Vlore is facing the problem of dynamite fishing. The concern
was raised by the Chief of Fishing Inspectorate in Vlore, who confirms
that this problem has existed for many years.
He says that in some cases there have been also fishing with chemical substances.
The fishermen, whose life is strictly connected to the sea, say that the economic situation is very difficult, due to high oil prices. Dynamite fishing or with chemical substances and Italian ships that fish in Albanian territorial waters only add the burden of their difficulties.
