Two tonnes of banned sea cucumber seized in Tamil Nadu’s Mandapam

Indian Coast Guard has seized two tonnes of banned sea cucumber in Tamil Nadu’s Mandapam. The teams were deployed in the Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay areas to effectively cordon the likely escape by sea route. Subsequently, a boat was intercepted carrying 200 bags of sea cucumber weighing 2000 kg yesterday. The boat was anchored about 15 kms off Vedalai South of Mandapam without crew. The value of seized sea cucumbers is reported to be about 8 core rupees. Sea cucumbers are in high demand in China and Southeast Asia.

On investigation, it was found that the consignment was planned for transshipment across the International Maritime Boundary Line during dark hours.
