Japanese longliner held in South Africa for illegal fishing

Looks like the Koel Maru No.88 has gotten itself into hot water off of the Aliwal Shoal MPA.  I appreciate IOL's specific listing of what tuna species this vessel is allowed to catch... "yellowfin and bigeye tuna, as well as swordfish and shark."

Which sharks, guys?  Don't stop your investigative journalism there!  Chalk it up to yet another shournofail.

Will be very interesting to see how this develops, and track down who, exactly, got the R2million 'security' bri-hrmp... I mean... fee.
