Four vessels were detained at a time over the past 24 hours off the Primorye Territory for illegal fishing
Four vessels were detained at a time over the past 24 hours off the Primorye Territory for illegal fishing and violation of the state border, Itar-Tass learnt on Thursday at the press group of the border branch of the Russian Federal Security Service for the Primorye Territory. According to air reconnaissance, four fishing boats without flags of state sovereignty, without names and identification signs were spotted in the central part of Peter the Great Bay, in Russian territorial waters. Coastguard ships rushed to the area. Borderguards were forced to open firing to hit in order to detain one of the ships. There were no casualties. Three Russian ships and a seiner, flying the Cambodian flag, turned to be the transgressors. An inspection group found 11 tonnes of crabs aboard the Cambodian Scat boat and 830 crab traps, some of which were ready for lowering. Another seven tonnes of illegally caught crabs were found aboard the Meridian and Vynoslivy ships, registered in the Primorye Territory. Borderguards detected only several crabs aboard the third Russian vessel – the seiner Angor of Sakhalin – which the crew were short of time to throw overboard. Not a single captain could fetch any permissive documents for fishing. All the detained ships were escorted to the Nakhodka port. The facts of illegal fishing are being investigated. Crabs to be recognized as viable in the presence of an ichthyologist, will be released into sea on Thursday.
