Surveillance operation leads to salmon poaching charges
Two men have been charged with illegal netting and selling of Atlantic salmon in central Newfoundland.
Provincial fish and wildlife officers from Springdale and Grand Falls-Windsor detachments arrested the men after a surveillance operation that spanned several weeks in the Harry's Harbour area.
The operation began in early July after members of the public called in tips about someone illegally catching and selling salmon.
Two men were arrested on July 16 for illegally netting salmon as well as possession of illegal salmon.
Two all-terrain vehicles, a net and three Atlantic salmon were seized.
