Pair summonsed over alleged illegal fish haul

Two Northern Territory men will be summonsed after allegedly being found in possession of an illegal fish haul after a week-long boat trip near Borroloola.

Police have seized two cars, a boat, trailer and fishing equipment worth more than $75,000 after the pair allegedly exceeded amateur fishing possession limits after spending last week at King Ash Bay.

Police say a search of eskies and freezers by the Marine and Fisheries Enforcement Section uncovered 80 barramundi and 61 golden snapper.

The bag limit is five per person.

A 52-year-old Alice Springs man and a 35-year-old man from the Darwin suburb of Karama will be summonsed for exceeding catch limits.
