Wildlife Troopers issue citations for crab pot violations in Gastineau Channel

Posted: September 4, 2012 - 3:32pm

Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Juneau say they inspected 87 personal use crab pots in the Gastineau Channel, south of downtown Juneau, last week.

Of those inspected, a total of 22 pots were seized Thursday for various violations of no biodegradable escape mechanism, improper escape rings or no markings, troopers said in a dispatch Friday.

Several obviously abandoned or lost crab pots were also kept for safe keeping, the dispatch stated.

Known owners of the seized gear will be contacted, and the remaining gear will be kept for two years unless owners can be identified. After two years, all gear becomes eligible for auction. Questions regarding lost gear or unmarked gear can be directed towards the Alaska Wildlife Troopers at 465-4000.
