Guardia Civil crackdown on illegal fishing off Marbella coast

A CRACKDOWN on illegal fishing has seen 10 people charged for poaching sea anemones off the coast of Marbella.

Guardia Civil officials confiscated 168 kilos of the popular delicacy – known in Andalucia as ‘ortiguillas’ – as well as netting equipment used to fish for the anemones.

The men were arrested as they attempted to transport their catch to Cadiz, where it would have been sold illegally.

The gastronomic delicacy is consumed in large quantities in Cadiz and Sevilla where they commonly fetch a price of €7 per dozen.
