WHOLESALE CRAB DEALER CAUGHT HIDING TRANSACTIONS

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Law Enforcement Divisionís Special Investigative Unit identified over 98,000 pounds of crabs not being reported to the department. Michael J Frickey, 47, of Marrero was charged with 32 counts of failing to maintain records of seafood transaction and 31 counts of failure to report fishery landing to the department.
LDWF uses reported commercial fishery information to aid in the management of the fisheries resources within the state. Sound information is essential in the development of fishery management plans and maintaining accurate fishery profiles.

The penalty for each violation of failing to maintain records and failure to report commercial fishery information caries a fine between $250 - $500 or jail for 90 days or both. The agent participating in this case was Sr. Agent Buck Hampton.
