Norwegian Coast Guard cutters on Sunday stopped a Russian-flagged trawler which had strayed into the special zone established around Spitsbergen. The Norwegians say the Russians had been dumping fish into the water, which is a serious crime against nature. The Izumrudny fishing boat is currently being escorted to the northern port of Tromso for further investigation.
