PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A criminal case has been opened against the captain of the Iklarand fishing boat seized in the Sea of Okhotsk in mid-February for violating nature protection laws and fishing regulations, a spokesman for the Kamchatka Territory prosecutor’s office told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The ship, owned by the Vostoktransservice company, was catching Alaska Pollock in the Kamchatka-Kuril fishing zone. It had a crew of 27, all Russian citizens.
On February 18, the Iklarand was stopped by the patrol boat Bars for inspection. The check revealed that the Iklarand crew used prohibited fishing tools. Moreover, its hold had unaccounted for fish.
The damage to the state was estimated at at least 600,000 roubles. An investigation is underway.
