PHUKET: In a move that would more than double Phuket’s tuna-fishing fleet – already the third largest in Asia – a delegation of Taiwanese investors are looking to set up an operations center in Phuket to take advantage of increased tuna stocks in the Andaman Sea.

The delegation of executives from Singapore-based Seaspire International floated the idea yesterday at a meeting with Phuket Governor Tri Augkaradacha.

The delegation’s Thai representative Supakorn Boonkhamied told Gov Tri that large stocks of Indian Ocean tuna had migrated from Indonesian waters to the Andaman Sea.

To take advantage of this, Seaspire International would like to move its regional operations base from Indonesia to Phuket.
