  • [01] Eels, fish spawn released into Lake Kastoria in ecosystem restoration project

    Eels and fish were released into Lake Kastoria, northwestern Greece, in an effort to restore its ecosystem that has been disturbed by the extensive use of pesticides in lakeside farms, as well as by urban waste and debris carried by floodwaters following heavy rainfall.

    The local authorities have released into the lake roughly 15,000 eels donated by a fish farm in the western city of Arta, while an estimated 50,000 trout spawn have been released into the lake dams of Vassiliada, Germa and Vrachos.

    The endeavor, launched five years ago, has already given results and will continue until the lake has a satisfactory fish population.

    [02] Contraband cigarettes

    More than 1.5 million packets of contraband cigarettes were seized by police in a warehouse outside Thessaloniki on Monday night, and three people were arrested, police said on Tuesday.

    During a coordinated operation, police arrested a 58-year-old man, his 29-year-old son-in-law and a 31-year-old accomplice were arrested in a rural area of Ionia municipality, and a large quantity of contraband cigarettes were found in a warehouse, while cartons of more contraband cigarettes, of various brands, were also found in two trucks with forged licence plates.
