Illegal Fishing: Foreign Boat Seized in Cabo Delgado

barcoilegal
A foreign boat was seized on the coast of the province of Cabo Delgado, in flagrant exercise of illegal fishing. 
In according to Leonid Chimarizene, National Director of Operations of the Ministry of Sea, Inland Waters and Fisheries, when the Surveillance agents approached the vessel, after his flight during the interpellation by the agents of Marine Surveillance, it was found that it had not reported its position entry into the Mozambican jurisdictional waters, was not properly identified, with no flag flying and no license to engage in fishing activity. 
However, ILLEGAL FISHING, considered an injury to be eradicated, constitutes one of the greatest challenges which the country faces. In fact, the estimates of financial loss to the country caused by illegal fishing activities are at least US $ 60 million per year, which presents us with great challenges in terms of strengthening our coastal surveillance.
