PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, June 18 (Itar-Tass) — The Cambodia-flagged schooner Masu Maru 5 was detained for crab poaching in the Sea of Okhotsk off Kamchatka, the press service of the North-Eastern border service of the Federal Security Service Coast Guard told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The Bars coast guard vessel spotted the poaching ship on June 17. A team of inspectors was dispatched to the schooner, which did not respond to the requests. The inspectors found that the schooner is flying the colours of the Kingdom of Cambodia. The captain and nine crewmembers are Russian citizens. Another two sailors are Ukrainian citizens.
The ship was equipped for the transportation of live and frozen fish. Some 21 tonnes of live crabs of various species were found in the special reservoirs on board the schooner. The schooner did not have any documents, which permit fishing in the exclusive economic zone and on the Russian continental shelf, fishing and sailing documentation.
All poached live crabs were released back in the sea after counting, the press service said. After that the schooner was convoyed to the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky port for investigation.
