Nearly 100 Dominican Poachers Arrested In The Bahamas
Nearly 100 Dominican poachers were arrested early Saturday morning after they were found with a large quantity of shell and scaled fish onboard a fishing vessel.

According to reports, Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) officers intercepted and searched two 65 feet vessels in the Ragged Island chain shortly after 7:00 a.m., according to officials.

The fishing vessel has since been apprehended for further processing in New Providence.  

For the past few months the RBDF says it has been very concerned about the growing reports of poachers in the Ragged Island chain.

The Defence Force says it will continue to actively investigate the reports.
