Attorney General Menahem Mazuz said Sunday that fish cages must be removed from the Gulf of Eilat by June 2008. Mazuz's rejected the request of Prime Minister's Office Director-General Ra'anan Dinur, who had asked for an extension for the cages' removal. In his announcement, Mazuz said that the practice, which has been going on for several years, was illegal and that the government had dedicated a lot of time toward removing the cages. The illegal fish farms operating in the bay have been blamed for threatening the coral reef and causing pollution.
