Zamboanga Sibugay Police Director Robert Roy Bahian identified the arrested fishermen as Imlani Sabdani, Miing Saidal and Abdulgani Julayli, all residents of Sitio Lugay-Lugay in the village of Naga-Naga, Alicia.
Bahian said they were nabbed around 9:30 a.m. Saturday off Litayon village by joint elements of Alicia Municipal Police Station and Alicia Fishery Law Enforcement Team.

He said the three fishermen violated Municipal Ordinance Number 67 of Alicia town.
