The Nature Protection Service, in collaboration with the Maritime Fisheries, has denounced a man for illegally in the Torrevieja marina.
Authorities were alerted that there was a boat enjoying recreational sea fishing almost daily and so carried out an inspection of the vessel. Inside were various species of fish, molluscs and crustaceans.
Officers also discovered a large amount of fishing equipment used for the illegal capture of the specimens, as well as a large fishing pot tied off the side of the boat. The alleged offender will be sanctioned before the Maritime authorities for a total of six offences.
After the relevant health and safety checks the catch was donated to a local charity centre.
