2 ‘Super Hulbot’ Vessels Nabbed In Carles

Two modified Danish Seine or Super Hulbots were apprehended by the Iloilo Provincial Bantay Dagat Task Force yesterday, July 1, 2024, in the vicinity of Asluman, Carles.

These commercial vessels are banned because they were destructive to the marine ecosystem under the Fishery Administrative Order 246-1 and Republic Act 10654.

The vessels and the gears are now impounded and are under the custody of the PBDTF. The crew are now detained at Carles Municipal Police Station and the necessary cases will be filed in court today.

With these latest apprehensions, we now have eight Super Hulbots or Modified Danish Seine in the custody of the PBDTF at our impounding area in Sitio Puntalis, Barangay Nipa, Concepcion.

The intensified campaign against illegal fishing complies with the directives of Gov. Toto Defensor to protect, preserve, and rehabilitate our municipal waters and to prevent and apprehend all forms of illegal fishing.
