£27,000 fines for illegal fishing

Two fishermen have been convicted of illegally fishing in Manx waters.

At Douglas Courthouse last week Mark Frood and Craig Petre were both fined for fishing without a license.

Frood was fined £15,000 and ordered to forfeit his £23,5000 catch while Petre was fined £12,000 and ordered to give up his catch worth almost £23,000.

The incident comes after a member of the Island's Scallop Management Board was prosecuted for illegal fishing last week.
