2 Men Found Guilty of Commercial Fishing Violations
A couple of commercial fishermen were found guilty of violations last week in Naknek. 46-year old Sergie Chukwak of Naknek was cited by the State Troopers for fishing during a closed period near Naknek and he was found guilty of that charge during a bench trial on August 26th in the Naknek District Court.
Sentencing is set for a later date. This is apparently Chukwak’s 6th commercial fishing violation since 2005. On Thursday 47-year old Christopher Cameron from Oregon was found guilty of a charge of fishing in closed waters near Naknek. That charge dates back to July of 2011. Cameron was given a $4-thousand dollar fine. This was Cameron’s 2nd conviction for a commercial fishing offense since 2009.
