Bay Roberts man banned from recreational fishery
A Bay Roberts resident is facing a one-year ban from taking part in the recreational cod fishery for exceeding the daily limit.
According to a Department of Fisheries and Oceans news release, Harold Ricketts was also fined $1,000 and forced to forfeit 30 fish and two trays.
He was charged under the Fisheries Act along with two other men — George Brown and Jack Brown. Both of those men are from Bayview and received penalties identical to Ricketts.
