Vietnamese border guards in the northern province of Quảng Ninh say they have repeatedly detained people for smuggling fish from China.

In the latest incident, the guards detected a boat with a man transporting 40 styrofoam boxes containing ornamental fish, aquatic plants and accessories for aquariums.

Earlier, another man in Móng Cái City was detained for carrying 47,000 fish for breeding from China without valid invoice. On the same day, the border guards nabbed a ship owner transporting 2.2 tonnes of dead goldfish from China, reports the Viet Nam News.
