Poaching costs Copper River fisherman bigtime

Authorities say a salmon gillnetter photographed fishing eight hours prior to an opener on the Copper River flats can keep his 33-foot boat, the F/V Sushi. But first he'll have to pay $20,000.

That's only part of the pain for Nikolai Reutov.

Read all about this case and plenty more fisheries enforcement news on The Brig.
