A representative of professional fishermen in the extreme NE border city of Alexandroupolis on Monday called for more patrols by Greek coast guard vessels in the sea region between the city and the island of Limnos, charging that Turkish flagged fishing boats are illegally fishing and overfishing in the area.
A spokesman for the group charged that Turkish-flagged vessels regularly fish within three to four nautical miles around Limnos, at the same time as Greek vessels fish exclusive in international waters in the early autumn season.
