Bahrain: Half A Ton Of Illegal Shrimp Seized
An estimated half a ton of shrimp caught by using an illegal shrimping method which is harmful to the environment has been seized by the Ports and Maritime Affairs (PMA).

Ports and Maritime Affairs (PMA) announced seizing an estimated half a ton of shrimp for using an illegal shrimping method which is harmful to the environment.

The use of trawl nets, locally known as Al-Kharaf, in the territorial waters of the Kingdom of Bahrain is prohibited.

A video of a vendor marketing large quantities of shrimp which circulated online led the authorities to investigate the matter and take necessary actions.

The PMA added that legal actions have been taken against the violators.
