Coast Guard patrols seized around 2 tons of illegally caught shrimp, which were netted in a prohibited way called mass nets or trawling, locally known as (Karaf). Fishing by trawling or mass nets leads to the destruction of the marine environment, in addition to poor shrimp stocks.

The seized quantities were confiscated and legal procedures were completed against the violators in preparation to refer the case to the Public Prosecution.
