Fines for illegal fishing 

Agents of the Civil Guard belonging to the Fiscal Patrol of Puerto de la Cruz have issued 26 complaints to six people in Tenerife for infractions of fishing regulations.

The men were caught practising spearfishing and shellfishing in apnea in prohibited areas of the island, specifically in Los Silos, the beach of Apio, in Valle Guerra and the coast of Jóver in La Laguna.

Agents have seized 28 kilos of octopus and 10 kilos of varied fish that have been distributed among reception centres.

Those affected face penalties ranging from 60 to 60,000 euros.
