Japanese craft detained in Kamchatka for having exceeded catch quotas

The Japanese research ship Kae Maru-28 which was detained in the exclusive economic zone of Russia the day before for the unwarranted excess of the catch quotas was convoyed to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (the centre of the Kamchatka peninsula) on Monday night. As nature-conservation prosecutor of the Kamchatka Region Alexander Teplyakov said, the ship's crew exceeded the quota for catching perch by 17 tons, pollack - by 40 tons, and halibut - by 49 tons. On the whole, 67 per cent of the catch was hidden from registration. As the prosecutor noted, two observers from Moscow and a staffer of the Kamchatka State Marine Inspectorate were on board the Japanese craft which stayed in the Russian waters of the Bering Sea within the international research programme. But, according to Teplyakov, they did not take any measures to prevent the unwarranted excess of the quotas. Criminal cases were already filed in April with regard to two observers who shielded the poaching, the prosecutor noted. Alexander Teplyakov believes that the outcome may be the same in this case, too.
