12:49 am
a potential poacher will been study. this is likely a set up for regular fishermen. they'll come back here after they've been out and hang up their nets. nobody's here. what a good their hunt for poachers is going to get more frustrating before the day is out. this is what thereafter, an illegal hall found during a raid a few weeks before. 22 kilos of caviar. sturgeon eggs stashed away in sports bags, worth some 2 and a half 1000 euros on the black market, per kilo to maximize the take. the poachers catch the big female sturgeon and kill them. the scene of this crime is the danube delta on romanian coast where the river empties into the black sea through a vast network of channels. along with rare plants and birds, the world's largest species of sturgeon is found here. what few remain of them catching them has been prohibited for years about 80 kilometers inland to the west

is some 3 meters long and weighs 800 kilos. the police struggle to save it for over an hour with healey, beth, about 2 kilometers away from the sea is found to giga, a fishing port that can only be reached by boat for years. the town lived from caviar exports. since sturgeon fishing was ban, the fishermen have struggled. now they ferry tourists around. no one here wants to talk about poaching. they say there's been no compensation nor aid programs. they still go out fishing, says miguel effie mav, but they don't touch the stir. fishing is as much a part of his life as the rock music playing on his tourist vote. he feels the ban targets the wrong people. no longer college or he really wants to get caught, or those guilty of only minor violations, sonata trump, for example, a grandpa truce unit in the washer was also lowered. if i to the he gets charged is rissa jill, cynthia, or others,
12:53 am
or push fish by the ton based wherever the where she has a particular are never called me a beacon to them back on the delta police boat. the patrol is over and didn't turn up anything suspicious this time. but all too often the professional poachers are too slick for them. gabrielle admits. they warn one another by radio and their boats are generally faster to you as if you are living. of course, i am disappointed all a day we don't achieve or goal is a day last, you see what on some of them will be back, would answer to the poachers who better watch out for us, for sure. on saudi genesis a foot, gabriella says the delta always gives him new strength, and he remembers the old police saying, the poachers may have gotten away 10 times, but next time we'll catch them. well caviar is not among the dishes, you'll find on the menu at nicholas fires. restaurant in the town of chester and
