Over 100 kilograms of octopus have been seized onboard a vessel owned by fishing company Yeye.

The raid was conducted by officers of the Ministry of Fisheries while the vessel was heading towards Mauritius after an expedition near St Brandon Island.

Saint Brandon, also known as the Cargados Carajos Shoals, is an Indian Ocean archipelago about 430 kilometres northeast of Mauritius consisting of a number of sand banks, shoals and islets.

Catching octopus is prohibited in Mauritius’ territorial waters at this time of year.
