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.
