Superintendent Martin Walker represented An Garda Síochána today at the launch of ‘Operation Silver Fin’.
This is an operation involving An Garda Síochána, the PSNI, the Loughs Agency, along with the Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime.
An Garda Síochána is committed to tackling wildlife crime including fish poaching in conjunction with our partners. The significance of this kind of crime cannot be over stated. At the most serious level it can have a direct impact on the economic, environmental and cultural lives of communities and can also negatively affect the conservation status of some native species.
