As i read “free for all at fishmarket” - was there any law that permitted the prohibited fish or shrimp that have been confisticated for sale given away to public for free. It was quite a shock when the prohibited item given away for free especially to the public with the presence of law enforcement person around there, is that a correct procedure to handle the confisticated thing. Laws Of Brunei, Chapter 61, Fisheries 13 of 1972 if so forfeited, shall be disposed of in such manner as the Director of Fisheries may direct. Any fish seized by an Authorised Officer in accordance with the provisions of this Act may be sold forthwith, and the proceeds of sale thereof shall be held to abide the result of any prosecution or claim or, where there is no
prosecution or claim, shall be paid to the person from whom the fish was seized.
