Fishing for Muskie in Thames River

July 16, 2018 - A London man has been fined $1,000 for a fishing offence under the Ontario Fishery Regulations.

Tiago Moreira Resendes pleaded guilty and was fined $1,000 for catching and retaining a muskellunge (muskie) during the closed season.

Court heard that on May 8, 2018, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officers observed Resendes angling on the Thames River at Fanshawe Conservation Area. An inspection determined that Resendes had caught and retained a muskellunge during the closed season for the species, which ran from December 15, 2017, to June 2, 2018.

Justice of the Peace Abdul Chahbar heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, London, on July 9, 2018.

The public is reminded that catch and possession limits are in place to maintain a sustainable fishery for future generations to enjoy. For more information on fishing regulations, please consult the Ontario Fishing Regulations Summary available at ontario.ca/fishing.
