600 kilos of southern hake were seized by naval officials from the maritime governorates of Puerto Montt and Castro at various points in the Los Lagos region.

The seizure of the fishing resource was performed during different controls, which reached 18 vessels that carried out extractive activities between Caleta Ayacara, Estero Reñihué in Palena and Tac Island and Buta Chauques in Chiloé.

The control was in charge of three patrol boats supported by the institutional plane dependent on the Fifth Naval Zone.

Along with the merchandise, 10 fishing nets of 45 meters each were confiscated.

During the procedure, seven citations were issued for violation of the Navigation and General Fisheries and Aquaculture laws.
