AN IRISH REGISTERED fishing vessel was detained earlier today for allegedly under-recording its catch and for other alleged breaches of fishing regulations.
The vessel was detained approximately 60 miles south east of Roches Point in County Cork.
The Naval Service vessel L.É. Aoife was involved in the operation.
The vessel is currently under escort to Cobh where it is expected to arrive later this evening, at which point it will be handed over to Gardaí.
The Naval Service have so far detained 15 vessels for 39 detected infringements in 2012.
