The majority of online users criticized the foreigner, alleging that his activities broke the law and harmed the marine habitat. They urged government organizations to file charges against the foreign national and the boatman. Thai internet users were furious on Thursday after seeing a TikTok video of a foreigner collecting parrotfish in the sea off Thailand. People can contact national park officials to take legal action against anyone who hunts parrotfish in the national park region, according to the page, which stated that the government also advised against buying or eating parrotfish. Following the story’s publication on the well-known Mor Lab Panda Facebook page, outraged Thai internet users called for legal action. The Department of National Parks Wildlife and Plant Conservation data, which claimed that the collecting of parrotfish for entertainment or cooking had caused the devastation of many coral reefs, was shared on the Facebook page “Drama-addict” in the meantime.
