5 Gillnetters were Cited for Wanton Waste Violations

In October of 2007, Alaska Wildlife Troopers began investigating chum salmon roe deliveries made by commercial fishermen,  The law requires that the salmon carcass must be utilized, but in some cases the carcasses were disposed of after the roe was removed.  The fishermen were charged with Class A misdemeanors which require a court appearance.  Besides the wanton waste violations,  some of the fishermen were also charged with failure to record a landing of salmon and processing without a current DEC permit.
