Investigation disclosed that personnel of the Sta. Cruz Municipal Police Station were conducting seaborne patrol operations at the municipal seawaters of Sta. Cruz last January 24 about 6 a.m. when they intercepted a group of persons on board a commercial fishing boat named “F/B Sheilannie” while in the act of fishing almost 2.5 kilometers away from shoreline of Salamague Islet. The fishermen used active fishing gear and a commercial fishing vessel with 2.72 gross tonnage which is prohibited under section 19, paragraph 3 of Municipal Ordinance No. 43 passed in 2002. Their catch of about 20 kilograms of fish was confiscated.
