    Default Five anglers fined for fishing in fishing sanctuary at Lock 19 in Peterborough

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Five anglers from the Greater Toronto Area have been fined a total of $2,600 for violating Ontario's fishery regulations by fishing in a fish sanctuary at Lock 19 in Peterborough.
    Amro Morsi Ellithy, Ziad Gaber and Marawan Abdelmegid, all of Mississauga, and Zein Haj Ali, of Oakville, pleaded guilty to fishing in a fish sanctuary during an appearance in the Ontario Court of Justice in Peterborough on Sept. 13 before Justice of the Peace Jason Mariasine.
    Each received a $400 fine, was given a two-year fishing licence suspension and forfeited their fishing equipment to the Crown.
    Aly Gomaa, of Mississauga, pleaded guilty to the same offence.
    He was fined $1,000 and was given a five-year fishing licence suspension.
    Court heard that in the early morning of May 12, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conservation officers observed the anglers fishing in a fish sanctuary at Lock 19 in Peterborough.
    The area was clearly posted to indicate that the sanctuary was still in effect.
    Gomaa, who had caught and retained a walleye, was previously convicted of the same offence at the same location two years earlier.
    The ministry is reminding anglers that fishing regulations are in place to maintain a sustainable fishery for future generations to enjoy.
    The Ontario Fishing Regulations Summary is posted at ontario.ca/fishing.


    To report a natural resources violation, call the ministry's tip-s line at 1-877-847-7667 toll-free any time or contact a local ministry office during regular business hours, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
    An interactive, searchable map of unsolved cases is posted at Ontario.ca/mnrftips for anyone who can provide information that will help solve a case.

    The 1,000.00 fine and 5 yr suspension will hopefully make him think ! But, I doubt it!

    If they're going to poach,Lock 19 is about the dumbest place to do it. Catching violators,there,is like shooting fish in a barrel. Residents who live down there have ZERO tolerance for morons and will drop a dime in a heartbeat if they think stuff isn't right. I used to live not far from there and used to fish there all the time back in the good ol' days when it was loaded with Pickerel in the spring and fall. Great memories........
