Illegal fishermen nabbed in Concepcion

THREE fishermen who have no permit were apprehended by the Iloilo Provincial Bantay Dagat Task Force off the coast of Concepcion town.

Police Officer 3 Charlie Asturias reported on Thursday that these fishermen were fined P2,500 each for engaging in fishing/fishery activity without license or permit.

These fishermen were Joefrey Ceriaco of Barangay Igbon, and Charlie Are and Jose Villamor of Barangay Poblacion, all in Concepcion.

They were onboard motorboat "St. Vincent," "Miracle" and "G-Boy" when the task force caught them during their seaborne operation.

The three were released from the town's prison cell after paying the compromise fine. (Jezza Nepomoceno)
