Illegal fishing activities
Radio Sintonia:

Fisheries Inspectorate draws up five reports for the illegal capture of more than 48 kilos of fish and seafood in Fuerteventura.

The infractions correspond to actions of shellfishing of limpets during the closed season in El Cotillo, fish catches that exceed the limit allowed in marinas, and the practice of underwater fishing in prohibited areas.

Agents of the Fisheries Inspection Service of the Government of the Canary Islands have drawn up five reports for the illegal capture of 43.85 kilos of fish and 4.46 kilos of limpets in Fuerteventura, and for the practice of underwater fishing in an unauthorized area. Two of these infractions correspond to cases of shellfishing of limpets during the closed season (a period in which capture is prohibited to protect marine resources) in El Cotillo. Two others relate to fish catches that exceed the permitted limit, detected as part of a campaign of surveillance, control and inspection in fishing matters in marinas on the island outside normal business hours, and the last one refers to the location of an underwater fisherman in a prohibited area near Tarajalejo (Tuineje).

These actions constitute serious infringements according to article 106.1.b) of Law 3/2001 on State Maritime Fishing, and can result in fines ranging from 301 to 60,000 euros. The general director of the Area, Armiche Ramos, recalled the importance of respecting fishing regulations to guarantee the sustainability of marine resources.
