(Seychelles News Ageny) The Seychelles’ Supreme Court on Friday sentenced the captain of a Sri Lankan fishing vessel $14,600 (SCR200,000) for illegal fishing in the Seychelles’ waters. The Sri Lankan national, Kaluharath Keerthirathan, pleaded guilty to the charge of fishing without a foreign licence on November 5, 2018. The captain has a month to pay the fine while the vessel ‘Subapathum’ has to forfeit all fishing gear and any fish on board to the state.

P. Mawanda, TODAY Newspaper, 5 May 2015: The country’s move to establish the Blue Economy may remain a pipedream if issues such as illegal fishing are not addressed. But are the authorities adequately armed to deal with the situation?
