Two individuals have been convicted and fined for unlawfully netting fish in inland waters.

Jordan Hodder and Brady Hill, both of Stoneville, were convicted and fined in Provincial Court at Gander.

Both received a $2,500 fine, a prohibition from participating in recreational fisheries for a period of three years, and a prohibition from being on or within 20 meters of inland waters for a period of three years.
