The crew were from two boats caught illegally fishing in a Coral Sea marine reserve off Australia’s north coast on June 2, with diving gear and six tonnes of sea cucumber — a delicacy in countries such as China — found on board. “Illegal fishing threatens the economic viability and sustainability of Australia’s well managed marine resources,” said Australian Fisheries Management Authority general manager Peter Venslovas.
