Two makeshift boats and 2 km of gill nets were destroyed over the weekend after being retrieved from the Mzingazi Canal, while 200 live fish were returned to the water.

Acting on a tip-off, members of the North Coast Anti-poaching group (NCAP) put paid to poaching attempts shortly before midnight on Friday.

Two suspects were apprehended, and their boats and gill nets destroyed.
