18 Dominicans aboard fishing boat detained by Bahamas military on suspicion of poaching


NASSAU, Bahamas(AP) _ Eighteen Dominicans aboard a fishing boat have been detained by the Bahamian military on suspicion of poaching.

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force says the suspected poachers were detained southwest of Great Exuma island.

Their 100-foot, steel-hulled boat was allegedly filled with scale fish and crawfish caught in Bahamian waters. It wasn’t immediately clear Sunday how much fish the Dominican-flagged vessel was carrying.

A Bahamian patrol boat and a plane are searching for four Dominican suspects aboard two skiffs who fled as their colleagues were being detained.

Last year, at least two Dominican fishing boats loaded with fresh catch were intercepted in waters of the sprawling archipelago off Florida’s east coast.
