(Q24N) BOGOTA – The Colombian navy detained a Costa Rican vessel caught fishing illegally in the Andean nation’s territorial waters, the military said Monday.

The Anagon was intercepted inside the boundaries of Malpelo Natural National Park, on Colombia’s Pacific coast.

The ship, with a crew of four Costa Rican nationals, was hauling 1.5 tons of fish, including shark and tuna, according to the navy statement.

The crew had not obtained the required permits to fish in the area and the ship lacked a health certification to transport fish for sale, the statement said.

Crew, ship and cargo were taken to Buenaventura, Colombia’s main port on the Pacific coast, and turned over to the appropriate authorities.
