The Naval Service Vessel L.É. AOIFE detained a British registered fishing vessel approximately 90 nautical miles south west off Mizen Head, Co Cork on wednesday 21st.

The detention was in relation to an alleged technical breach of fishing regulations.

The vessel is being escorted by the L.É. AOIFE to Castletownbere, and it is expected to arrive alongside tomorrow morning, where it will be handed over to An Gardaí Síochána.

This brings to 730 total vessels boarded by the Naval Service in 2013. There have been 24 warnings issued and this is the 7th vessel detained by the Naval Service so far this year.
