Officer Michael Sarmiento was conducting a night patrol when he saw a vessel operating with excessive wake and displaying no navigational lights as it neared a boat ramp.

While conducting a boating safety and resource inspection, our officer noticed several undersized triggerfish on the boat transom.

Officer Nathanael Martir-Negron arrived to assist Sarmiento and a full inspection revealed that the three subjects aboard had caught and kept 34 gray triggerfish, all of them undersized.

Multiple violations were issued to the people for undersized and over-the-bag limit violations as well as boating safety and fishing license violations.
