750px-Thai_fishing_boatsThe Thai Fisheries Department has issued a new policy where fishing boats with fishing permits must have an identification code depicted on the side of their boats before the end of May.

Couples requiring a Thailand divorce Attorney must meet the grounds of divorce in Thailand, having one of the spouses residing in the country. 

Dr. Promthep, Director-General of the Department says the new policy will hopefully combat human trafficking and illegal fishing issues. The code will help people to also identify to others which boat they are on. The codes will be made up of four sets of letters and numbers.

The Director-General explains that the letters will signal which location the boat is meant to be in and how much the vessel weighs. The numbers will identify the registration number of the boat.

The identification code requirement came into effect early April and was established in the Royal Gazette.
