[More than fifty kilos of octopus of smaller size than the minimum involved in Mazarr n (29/12/2020)

The driver of the vehicle where the octopus was transported has been denounced for several infractions to the fishing regulations After his identification, the skipper of the vessel that allegedly carried out the illegal catches has also been denounced.

The immobilized fish, after being declared fit for consumption, has been donated to charity The Civil Guard of the Murcia Region and the Fisheries and Aquaculture Service of the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia (CARM ), has developed an action in Mazarr n that has made it possible to detect the presumed capture and commercialization of fish of sizes below the established minimums.

The action has been carried out within the framework of the controls carried out on roads and fish markets by the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA) of La Benem rita, in collaboration with the Fisheries and Aquaculture Service of the CARM, in order to pursue both the illegal capture and commercialization of fish, in this case within the 'Annual Plan for the Comprehensive Control of Fishing Activities' (PACIAP).

A few months ago, the commission of fishing activities on the Murcian coast was detected, presumably related to the capture and subsequent illegal marketing of octopus (Octopus Vulgaris).

In this case, apparently, it was that the captured specimens were smaller than the minimum set, so a device was established in order to verify the facts and, where appropriate, clarify them.

A series of controls and follow-ups were carried out inside the device that have paid off in recent days.

In a vehicle in Mazarr n the transport of more than fifty kilos of octopus smaller than the established size was detected.

The driver of the vehicle has been denounced for infractions regulated in the current regulations on fishing, traceability, labeling, hygiene and transport.

Subsequently, the person in charge of the vessel that allegedly had illegally captured the immature octopus was identified, who has been denounced for the capture, retention on board, landing and unloading of species of size or weight non-regulatory, as well as the breach of the obligation to pass the fish product through the fish market for its first sale.

The civil guards of the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA) and the CARM inspectors immobilized the octopus, which dropped a total weight of 55.6 kilograms.

Once the Health services of the Autonomous Community certified their fitness for human consumption, the seized fish has been delivered to a charity center.
