Mayotte: 18 provisional measures of seizure for illegal fisheries in the Mahoran lagoon since the beginning of the year 2014
 
A fragrance operation conducted jointly by staff of Maritime Affairs of Mayotte and brigade of nature has verbalised the weekend a boatman and its occupants in violation of underwater fishing.
 
Five people were operating inside the reef in the area of Bandrélé from the canoe which had no longer any distinctive registration.
 
Fifty kilos of reef fish as well as hunting equipment and equipment necessary for the practice of sleep apnea have been confiscated by the maritime authorities, as Kwezi Television indicates.
 
Thus since the beginning of the year 2014, 18 provisional measures of seizure were made following procedures in direct relationship with 11 offences to the activity of spearfishing and five for illegal fishing.
 
As a reminder, a prefectoral decree dating from May 20, 2014 prohibited "hunting diving and harvesting of marine plants in the lagoon of Mayotte", and this, to preserve fishery resources.
