Twelve charges were laid against anglers stopped by Ministry of Natural Resources’ conservation officers at a game and fish check station east of Fort Frances.
On Sept. 26, conservation officers from Fort Frances, Atikokan, and Dryden districts checked 155 non-residents and 14 residents who had been hunting or fishing, or possessed game or fish.
In addition to the charges, the officers issued nine warnings.
The ministry’s canine unit from Dryden conducted eight vehicle inspections and assisted in the discovery of a large over-limit of fish.
The violations included over-limits of fish, transporting fish packaged so they could not be identified or counted, and failure to produce a licence.
Conservation officers also are continuing to investigate a number of other violations.
To report a natural resource violation, call toll-free 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) any time or contact your local MNR office during regular business hours.
