Thailand Overfishing Fought By Dumping Army Tanks, Trains And Garbage Trucks Into Ocean For Artificial Reefs (VIDEO)

After Thai fisherman petitioned for help in solving their overfishing problem, the Thai Queen has responded by dumping 25 decommissioned army tanks, 273 old train cars, and 198 garbage trucks into the ocean to create artificial reefs, Al Jazeera reports.

The abandoned vehicles will create a total of 72 artificial reefs, which are hoped to increase local fish stocks by attracting new marine life populations to inhabit them.
