PHUKET: The captain, crew and operator of a sunken Phuket fishing boat that was salvaged off Racha Noi Island last month will not face charges for a haul of baby rays and guitarfish found on the sea bed where the wreck came to rest.

 

The Aor Janjira fishing boat sank in heavy seas off Koh Racha Noi on Jan 18. The boat was recovered on Jan 25.

 

“When the Aor Janjira was being salvaged, the divers found guitarfish and stingrays all over the sea bed,” Nares Choopueng of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) told The Phuket News this morning.
