Russian authorities on Saturday released a Japanese crab-fishing boat and its crew after seizing it last month for allegedly fishing illegally in Russia’s exclusive economic zone, Japanese officials said.

The Yoshi Maru No. 38 left the port of Nakhodka in the Russian Far East for Sakaiminato, Tottori Prefecture, at around 7:40 p.m. Japan time, said seafood processor Hiyoshi Suisan, which owns the 122-ton boat.
