Senior Constable Sean Stanley said police stopped the men, who were driving a Toyota LandCruiser towing a 4.6m boat. He said Operation Arbell focused on marine safety and enforcing bag limits put in place to protect stock numbers of fish species. “The possession limit in the Northern Territory for golden snapper is three per person – they were over the bag limit by 18 fish,” he said.
