Courier-Islander article: Company handed $5,000 fine for wild fish infraction
The article Company handed $5,000 fine for wild fish infraction details how “Marine Harvest Canada (MHC) has been fined $5,000 after pleading guilty to
a charge of failing to properly return Pacific herring to the wild in October 2009. But the plea and sentencing in a Port Hardy courtroom Wednesday was the culmination of a lengthy – and some say historic – case.”
