Agents of the Dénia Local Police Maritime Surveillance Service have surprised a poacher on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 27, who carried out underwater fishing inside the bathing area of the Cabo de San Antonio Marine Reserve.
Carrying out their functions of surveillance and control of the bathing areas marked out by the Dénia City Council, in the Maritime Service boat, they have observed around 17:30 p.m., in the section between Punta Negra and Cala del final de Les Rotes, to a person who could be found spearfishing.
One of the agents has approached by swimming and has been able to verify how, effectively, that person was fishing.
In the same way, he has verified that he had three captures with him, for which reason they have proceeded to identify and confiscate the material used as well as the three pieces that he had collected.
A complaint will be filed with the Ministry of Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change and Rural Development, for fishing inside the Marine Reserve.
