11.4. Any conviction for an offence under a provision of subparagraph a of the first paragraph of section 7 entails the confiscation of the thing seized.
Upon pronouncing a conviction for an offence under a provision of subparagraph b of the first paragraph of section 7, section 8 or 8.1 or a provision of any regulation the contravention of which constitutes an offence under paragraph p of section 9, a judge may, on the application of the prosecutor, order the confiscation of the thing seized. However, where fish is seized, the conviction entails the confiscation thereof.
Prior notice of the application for confiscation shall be given by the prosecutor to the person from whom the thing was seized or to the offender, except where they are in the presence of the judge.
