Employees of the border department of the FSB of Russia stopped the theft of biological resources by foreign poachers in the Barents and Japan Seas. In the Barents Sea, the Norwegian trawler "Arctic Swan" was detained, which violated the fishing rules while catching shrimp in the area of the island of Maly Ainov.
Russian border guards of the FSB border guard in the western Arctic region escorted the Norwegian ship to the port of Murmansk, where a further investigation will be conducted that will determine the degree of guilt of the Norwegian poachers and administrative measures.
In the Sea of Japan, officers of the FSB border control in the Primorsky Territory detained a foreign vessel engaged in the illegal fishing of crab in Russian waters.
During the operation, fishing gear was seized, and more than three thousand individuals of the red shear crab were released into the natural habitat.
In the message TASS the nationality of the vessel is not indicated, but it can be assumed that we are talking about Japanese or Korean poachers, who are the most frequent “guests” of Russian border guards in these parts.
