The fine on this seems kinda low given the amount of crab and their value. Doesn't seem like it would be much of a deterrent if someone was selling them...Figured I could post this trooper report since it doesn't name anyone.
Type: Take Red King Crab without Permit
Text: On 3-1-13 Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Juneau contacted a 17 year old male juvenile that was returning from crabbing in the area of Coghlan Island. Investigation revealed the subject had retained eight red king crab from the waters of 11-A. The juvenile was issued a $510 bailable citation for retaining the crab during a time when red king crab was not open to fishing under the authority of a permit. He was given 30 days to respond to the citation in the District Court at Juneau.
