By BBN Staff: Authorities busted Copper Bank fisherman, Yusef Ricardo Tzul, with out-of-season lobster back in May when it was learned that he does not have a valid fishing license. That man appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today to answer for those offenses.

Tzul pleaded guilty to the two fisheries offenses, for which he received fines. For the lobster, he was fined $100 plus a $5.00 cost of court fine with an additional fine of $140 which is the penalty fee of $20 each for the seven lobsters he was found in possession with during the closed season. He must pay those fines by January 28, 2022, in default, one-week imprisonment.

Tzul was also fined $150 plus a $5.00 cost or court fine for the offense of fishing without a license. Tzul has until February 22, 2022, to pay this fine in default, 3 weeks imprisonment.

Tzul on May 31, 2021, was found at about 9:45 a.m. onboard a vessel ‘Shayla’ near Sandbore Caye within Lighthouse Reef Atoll.
