An informant reportedly alerted local authorities about the illegally caught fish that was being sold on the island, prompting its owners to abandon them.

The illegal catch was turned over to municipal authorities.

A follow-up operation to identify the persons behind the illegal activity has been launched by the FPLEG-BFAR.
