The financiers of the Naval Operational Section of Roccella Ionica, during services against poaching, coordinated by the Air and Naval Operations Department of Vibo Valentia, seized over half a ton of juvenile sardines, known as “bianchetto”.
After several observation and patrolling services carried out with the aid of ground patrols and naval units, the military caught a person red-handed who, with a pleasure boat, was intent on catching juvenile sardines in the waters in front of the locality of Riace Marina. The financiers who intervened seized a purse seine over 30 meters long and more than half a ton of juvenile sardines. The man was served with a report with administrative sanctions of over 60 thousand euros.
The fish product, subjected to health checks by the veterinary staff of the local ASP to verify its suitability for human consumption, was donated to charitable institutions for consumption in their canteens.
