Coastal fishermen arrested near Montecristi

The Dominican Armada (Navy) has announced the arrest of 14 people (eight Haitians and six Dominicans) accused of illegal fishing in coastal waters off Montecristi. Vice Admiral Edmundo Nestor Felix Pimentel said the fishermen used equipment to capture marine species during their breeding season. The Armada confiscated the fishing boats and said they would continue to clamp down on illegal fishing off the coasts of Puerto Plata, Samana and Sabana de la Mar.
