33 dead dolphins found in Turkish fishing ship’s nets

33 dead dolphins were found in the 30 kilometers of fishing nets that had been laid by the ‘Ahmed Canoglu’ Turkish fishing ship caught poaching in Romania’s exclusive economic zone at the end of May. “No less than 33 dead dolphins were discovered in the fishing nets. 46 live plaice were released back into the sea, while 5 were sold,” Adrian Burcea, spokesperson of the Constanta Border Police Inspectorate, stated. According to him, the negative effect of poaching is amplified by the fact that the population of dolphins has been decimated in the Black Sea.
