Somaliland coast guards confiscate illegal fishing vessels

Somaliland coast guards seized four illegal fishing boats off the coast of Somaliland State after an operation carried out by the guards.

The authorities said that the boats were taken while grabbing the region’s natural resources.

According to the Guards, the vessels which have the Egyptian flag and their crew will be prosecuted soon.

Meanwhile, Somali authorities have severally called on foreign navies to join the fight against illegal fishing on the country’s coast.

Although the presence of the European Union Naval Force Somalia (EUNAVFOR) as well as the presence of many other naval authorities have drastically reduced maritime crime off the Somali coast, isolated incidents have been reported frequently.
