Two Industrial trawlers have been arrested and detained by the Ghana Navy in Cape Coast and Tema for illegally operating in the country’s territorial waters.

The trawlers, MV Awoyaa 8, with registration number AF 648 and MV Zhong Lu Yu 1004, with registration number AF 675 have been detained at the Western Naval command in Takoradi and the Tema Habour, as an arbitration committee determines the next course of action.

A Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture, Nii Amasah Namoale, said the operation was a collaborative effort between the Ghana Navy and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture as well as the Fisheries Management Committees in Cape Coast and Moree.
