Default Coast Guard seizes shrimp

The Coast Guard seized around 19,000 lbs. of shrimp from a boat fishing in a restricted area, the Coast Guard said in a news release.
The shrimp was seizned Sunday around 13 miles south of Belle Pass. The area is closed due to the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The Coast Guard said it received an alert that the boat "Little Andrew'' was fishing in the restricted area and dispatched a response boat from the Grand Isle station. Coast Guard members boarded the "Little Andrew'' for an inspection and found 19,000 lbs. of white shrimp on board. The Coast Guard said the shrimp "was returned to the sea.''
"NOAA has implemented a federal fisheries closure to ensure public safety by preventing any fish or shellfish from being harvested in the waters affected by the Deepwater Horizon MC252 incident," said Lt. Bryan Harrell, a law enforcement duty officer for the Eighth Coast Guard District.
The master of the Little Andrew, who was not named in the news release, was issued a written warning, the Coast Guard said.

That guy got screwed with a lil lube! 19k threw back, and then warned, I would of begged the coast gaurd not to throw them back and write me a citation rather then throw them back and then warn me. But then what would they charge him with, coast guard isn't wlf.

19k x say $1.5 a lb = almost $30,000.

Turns out, it was jordan's tackle box that they discovered! That's why there were no citations issued! Lol

A lot of times they follow you to the dock and make you sell them. After you sell them they take the money and give you a ticket to go with it. Being it was in closed waters and the possibility of the Louisiana Seafood being tainted they didnt want it on the market.

If it wasn't tainted, they usually sell them and put money in an escrow account in case they are not guilty.
