Belize Coast Guard Makes 40 Grand Fisheries Bust!

The Belize Coast Guard made a fisheries bust of marine products valued at forty-thousand dollars.  The Coast Guard was carrying out an operation near the Manatee Bar Mouth earlier today when they discovered three fishermen operating with expired fisher folk license.  The fishermen were found with nine drums and several coolers filled with marine products including shark meat and other fin fish. The products amounted to forty-thousand dollars in value. They also had an assortment of nets, three of which were longer than a thousand feet and exceeded the legal limit. The Coast Guard says that one of men is a Belizean, while the other two are Guatemalans with naturalization documents. They are expected to be charged by the relevant authorities in the coming days.
