    And yet people blame the commercial guys here in Ak!
    Seriously they should have let the boat pick up its nets they had set and then impounded the boat and sold it at auction.
    They also should have seized the cargo and used the fish to feed the hungary here in Ak or elsewhere in the USA.
    This is what i think we should do more often. Certainly would make them think twice. http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/a...op/255066.html

    Nothing makes sense anymore. We let bad guys go free as a matter of course and punish those who do well.

    Meanwhile in Homer a Homer-ported longliner showed up over-quota with under sized halibut along with fillets on ice in the hold and illegal bycatch (lingcod) as well. NOAA seized the fish and the boat.

    the boat should have been used as a target for the coast guard... Wonder how many 40mm boffors rounds it would take before going under?

    They hadn't set the nets, just pitched them over the side so they wouldn't get caught with them.

    They were turned over to the Chinese Coast Guard, who had Officers on board the Morgenthau.

    Of course glad they're patrolling but I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of dollars the US spent just dealing with this one boat that they did not even seize to try to recoup expenses.

    Having the chinese observers aboard, I bet they had a deal just to send'm home when they found'm......

    Mores to pity that we'll treat our own citizens far far harsher than a foreigner doing the same thing.

    Not too sure that siezing the boat would help recoup anything. By seizing the boat, we would be taking on all the expenses associated with the boat. Harborage costs, repairs and maintenace (the boat was noted to be leaking polution), pay someone to deal with 1000 lbs of salmon (process it? dump it because its adulterated?) Everyone knows that boats are big-azzed holes in the water in which to pour money....this one would be no different.
