Illegal Sea Cucumber harvesting already happening in Pohnpei waters.
Illegal fishing boats were caught and brought in to the Pohnpei port. Most of the catch was shallow water harvesting (not tuna fishing). Tons of sea cucumber were found on the boats. Looks like they were fishing Pohnpei and other FSM atolls in the darkness of the night. Half of the crew on the boats were the same ones arrested before on the same kind of boats a year or two back. Looks like they are all in jail no. No more hanging out at the harbor until some humanitarian organizations buys them a tickets to go home and start doing it all over again. Bill James.....here is a good story for the KP. Laws being broken in every possible way and a environmental disaster for Pohnpei and FSM. The last thing we need is legal sea cucumber harvesting while a bunch of boats are out there now doing it illegally.
