Busted twice this year for hidden compartments



It turns out that the New Bedford, Massachusetts, commercial scallop fisherman who was forced to give up the 881-pound bluefin tuna he accidentally caught in a net earlier this week has a history of fisheries violations.

So? Laws are at a point where you might as well call them infinate. It is infinatley probable, a person will not know them all.

Hidden fish compartments are a pretty big violation. This isn't some technicality

Oh. How can they tell they are hidden fish compartments? I though all fish compartment would be hidden under the deck and out of the way.Where do hidder ones go? I have a few compartments on my boat. I hope they aren't illegal. I'm probably safe either way though. I'm pretty sure I don't have any way to catch a tuna fish
