Fishing for sea urchins is regulated

MARIGOT: A little reminder that fishing for sea urchins is exclusively reserved for professional fishermen under certain conditions and prohibited to individuals.

This is what a patrol of the Peloton de Surveillance et d’Intervention de la Gendarmerie (PSIG) reminded a street vendor who was trying to sell this species on the public highway. The animals were seized and released.

Violations of these regulations are punishable by administrative and/or criminal fines of up to €22,500, as well as the seizure of the vessel and any vehicle or equipment that allowed the commission of the offence. Remember to get informed before fishing or buying protected species.
