Fishing Vessel Detained off Ballycotton

#FISHERY DETENTION – The Naval Service coastal patrol vessel (CPV) L.É. Ciara detained an Irish registered fishing vessel some 30 nautical miles south of Ballycotton Co. Cork. The detention which took place around midnight on Wednesday was for an alleged breach of technical fishing regulations.

The trawler was escorted by the L.É. Ciara (P42) to Cobh where it arrived on the Thursday and was handed over to the Gardaí.

In late July the L.É. Aisling (P23) detained an Irish registered vessel in waters approximately 125 nautical miles off Loop Head, Co. Clare. To date the Naval Service have carried out 946 boardings, issued 38 warnings and detained 12 vessels so far in 2012.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
