A joint operation involving Saint Lucia and Martinique law enforcement officials resulted in the interception of a vessel leaving Saint Lucia with over one ton of illegal conch on Tuesday.

Martinique media said law enforcement authorities arrested a Saint Lucian and three Martinique nationals  after intercepting the boat.

But according to the reports, several other suspects managed to escape as the illegal cargo was being offloaded at Vauclin in the southeast of Martinique.

The export of conch from Saint Lucia requires a permit.

In November last year, Saint Lucia’s Marine Police reported that a crackdown on fisheries-related violations resulted in the seizure of 5,500 pounds of conch or lambi during a period of one month.
