Illegal fishing off Maui leads to 10 citations

By 67AM KPUA News

KAHULUI, Hawaii (AP) The Department of Land and Natural Resources has issued 10 citations for illegal fishing activity in north Maui waters.

Two citations were issued to an offshore lay net fisher who caught nearly 300 pounds of fish at Kanaha Beach Park. Most of the fish caught by the lay net fisher were amaama or striped mullet. Lay net fishing is currently banned around Maui.

Other citations were for possession of an undersized kumu, or goatfish, and possession of an undersized octopus.

The alleged violations occurred in November. Department spokeswoman Deborah Ward said Thursday the agency doesn't have figures for more recent citations.

The Maui-based Community Fisheries Enforcement Unit issued the citations with the help of other enforcement personnel from the department.
