Enforcing fishery regulations in Zambia

CreditLumbwe Kalumba (Zambia)
A Department of Fisheries officer displays fish that was caught during the closed fishing season. It is illegal to be found in fishing or in possession of fish during this period which runs from 1st of December to 28th of February in the following year. The fish and fishing gears are then destroyed by the courts of law. Persons found wanting are either fined or sentenced to simple imprisonment or both.
