Scallop Fishing Area 24
Brady Creed pleads guilty, fined $1,500
GEORGETOWN — A scallop fisherman earned a heavy fine in provincial court here recently for fishing in a closed area.
Brady Creed pleaded guilty to being inside closed scallop fishing zone Area 24 last November.
Court was told the Department of Fisheries and Oceans enforcement plane spotted and photographed Creed at over 500 metres inside the closed zone. The vessel hauled drags when it saw the plane.
The 42-year-old fisherman was fined $1,500.
