Heartless fishing crew dumped plastic in sea

A PROFESSIONAL fishing boat called El Gofio has been denounced, following video evidence of the crew dumping all types of waste into the sea.

The rubbish included such items as cardboard, and, the deadliest rubbish of all, plastic, by cleaning its decks every day in front of Playa San Juan and Alcalá, in the Guía de Isora municipality.

Guía de Isora’s City Council has brought the video report to the attention of the Guardia Civil’s animal protection unit, Seprona, which will determine the extent of punishment meted out to the boat-owners.

If guilty, they will have expressed an irresponsible attitude towards the marine environment, very close to the coast, and, also, interfering with the sanctuary of the pilot whales.

An investigation is under way.
