Two arrests after an elver seizure in Dartmouth.

A truck was also seized, along with 60 kilograms of the baby eels, valued up to $350,000.

The seizure happened at a ground transport facility on Friday.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans says they heard about the shipment and made the interception.

The elver was set to be driven to Toronto for shipment overseas.

DFO says they’re still investigating.
