Nearly 700 illegally caught lobsters have been seized in an operation in Rosslare, as RTÉ News reports.

Officers from the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA) detained a Spain-bound lorry in the Co Wexford port town yesterday, Wednesday 22 July.

On board they found more than 600 of its 6,000-lobster load were undersized — and 60 others were V-notched, indicating female lobsters which must be returned for breeding.

It followed an earlier incident this week in which SFPA officers seized 86 lobsters from a recreational fisher, despite the law allowing only one lobster to be caught per day and with sales prohibited.

#MARINE WILDLIFE - For something a little unusual on this Bank Holiday Monday, check out this video of lobsters locked in a duel beneath the waves in Co Donegal.

This clash of crustaceans was captured on video by the Sheephaven Sub Aqua Club earlier this month at Mulroy Bay near Letterkenny.
