Inspectors seize octopus in Lanzarote restaurant
Inspectors of the Government of the Canary Islands seized 29 kilos of octopus without documentation in a restaurant in Lanzarote.
The merchandise impounded in Arrecife lacked documentation to prove its legal origin and traceability. The octopus was located inside a freezer, distributed in different plastic bags.
According to current legislation, any fishery product marketed in fishmongers or restaurants must be accompanied by the documentation proving their traceability and legal provenance.
