Default Do you see a trend here?

Thanh Van Le, 45, of Houma and captain of the Friendship, was found to be in illegal possession of 12 red snapper.

Agents boarded the fishing vessel Friendship and found two sacks containing red snapper under sacks of frozen shrimp in the hold of the vessel. The red snapper were wrapped in white plastic to conceal their presence.

Upon interviewing the captain, it was determined the red snapper had been illegally caught in the vessel's shrimp nets. Agents inspected the captain's licenses and federal permits, and found the captain did not have a federal permit for red snapper.

Thanh Van Le was also cited for not having a federal permit for red snapper and for using unapproved gear.

Agents assigned to the Oyster Strike Force, while on patrol in Bayou Grand Calliou, found a vessel dredging oysters on a private lease without the lease owner's permission.

Agents cited Santiago Flores Martinez, 47, and Aranda Fernando, 31, both from Houma, and Lazaro Garcia Zepeta, 45, from Montegut, for unlawfully taking oysters from a private lease and failure to have written permission. Agents returned all the oysters contained in the dredges and on the vessel to the private lease.

Confiscate the boats and destroy them, fine them $500.00 per sack, $1,000.00 per offense.

Damit Ray, I am going to send you my Dr's bill.

Makes me sick that foriegn bastids can do these things and pay very little.
Should be mandatory jail time, huge fines and no commercial license for at least a year.
If one gets away with it, others will try too, just to make more money.
