This is the story of three “gentlemen” who travelled from the island of Lanzarote, where they live, to the island of Fuerteventura, in the Canary Islands, on a “business trip”. To make fast money, they decided to use banned equipment to catch plenty of fish. Then, they would lift the nets, and put them in their car boot, with the fish inside.
Unfortunately (for them), they got caught. The fish was safely released back into the sea. The equipment was seized and destroyed. The “team” got slapped with a hefty fine, for also catching baby fish, under the minimum size limit.
