Deputy James Hager was patrolling during
the two day sport lobster season today when he saw three men harvesting lobster
near the north end of Spanish Harbor Bridge on the bay side. Upon inspecting
their catch, he observed several violations.
Maksim Parshin of
Miami, Alexey Ivanenko of Hollywood and Valeriy Gerber of Sunny Isles beach were
all cited for possession of undersize lobster, possession of speared lobster
and harvesting lobster without a measuring device.
This is just one
of a number of marine violations deputies found both on land and on the water
during the course of the day.
