    Release them but confiscate the boats then there is no economy of catching fish in troubled water. Release the boats after next UN Human Right only if they (Indians) vote in favour of us.

    Perennial problem which will continue because its beyond the authorities to figure a way to stop this. Did they think of GPS??

    India may be purposely and secretly encouraging poaching hoping it will escalate into a full blown issue and use it to discredit us.

    Conficate the catch, fine the the fisherman and only release the boats and fisherman when the fine is paid. Fines should be considerbale as they do in Australia, $70,000-$90000.a time.
