Fishing Regulation Officer for BFAR Region V and spokesperson of the said government agency Nonie Enolva told the BICOL STANDARD that the apprehension was made when the alleged owner failed to present the necessary documents, like the transport permit, importation permit, and other pertinent documents.

During the initial investigation, it was discovered that the said trucks were loaded with different kinds of fishes, like galunggong, timon-timon, tulingan and mackerel.

The fish dealers were reported to have come from Camarines Norte and Sorsogon.

They were given five days from today to produce the necessary documents to prove the legality of their business.

The law enforcement teams who conducted the operations were members of the Albay Coastal Rangers and the Legazpi City police. The confiscation was made inside the territory of the Legazpi City Port.

As of this writing, the confiscated fisheries products will be temporarily stored at the PFDA Camaligan Sports complex.

The investigators said that the confiscated fishery products were registered in the name of Nelly Fish Products of Daet, Camarines Norte and Lenny Aquino Fish Dealer, of Magallanes, Sorsogon.
