Jamaican officials seize 13,000 pounds of fish, detain 82

Kingston, Apr 7 (AP) Authorities in Jamaica have seized more than 13,000 pounds fish and arrested 82 people on charges of illegal fishing.

The island’s Coast Guard said in a statement today that 59 of those fishermen were from the Dominican Republic.

Officials said the remainder were from Jamaica and did not have a fishing licence.

The arrests and seizures occurred in the past week.

Jamaica’s Coast Guard said it expects the number of cases to grow because it recently bought a new fleet of boats to patrol waters around the island. (AP)
