S. Korea to Install Artificial Reefs in Yellow Sea to Prevent Illegal Fishing

Artificial reefs will be installed near South Korea's maritime border in the Yellow Sea in a bid to prevent illegal fishing by Chinese vessels.

Incheon City said on Wednesday that it will spend seven billion won this year to install additional artificial reefs around the country's five northwestern border islands, including Baengnyeong and Daecheong.

An artificial reef is a man-made underwater structure that mimics some of the characteristics of a natural reef to protect marine resources and is also effective in preventing illegal trawling.

The central government and Incheon spent ten billion won to install 650 artificial reefs around the islands last year.
