Fisherman Loses Big Money for Illegal Produce

Jorge Casanova

Chunox village fisherman Jorge Casanova was caught red-handed with a variety of illegal produce in December in the vicinity of Tarpon Creek in the Turneffe Atolls. It will cost him big money, about three thousand dollars’ worth. The nineteen year old was found on December twenty-ninth with ninety-five undersized market cleaned partial conch, each under three ounces in weight. He also had twenty-four undersized lobster tails of less than four ounces in weight; three soft-shelled lobster tails and a lobster egg. First-time offender Casanova pleaded guilty before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford and must pay all his fines, a total of three thousand two hundred and twenty dollars, by the end of March.
