The fishing vessel was detained approximately one hundred nautical miles south west of Mizen Head and was due for arrival into Castletownbere on Saturday 19 April.

It brings to 250 the number of boardings conducted this year by the Naval Service, with 17 warnings issued and this is the third vessel detained for alleged infringements of fisheries regulations in 2014.

The Naval Service in partnership with the Air Corps Maritime Squadron monitors all fishing activity within the Irish Exclusive Fishery Limit enforcing EU Fisheries Regulations to all countries.
