 $2,000 Fine and Licence Suspension For Too Many Lake Simcoe Perch


Two Toronto-area men have each been fined $1,000 and had their licences suspended for two years for taking 179 perch over the limit. 


So Chon Luu, of Toronto, and Van Cuong Nguyen, of Vaughan, pleaded guilty to catching and keeping more than their legal quota of fish.


Court heard that on April 10, 2009, a conservation officer on patrol in Cooks Bay on Lake Simcoe checked the men fishing from a boat near the shore.  Luu and Nguyen both had conservation fishing licences that allow an angler to catch 25 yellow perch per day.  The conservation officer, with the help of a York Regional Police constable, counted a total of 179 yellow perch over their catch limit.


Justice of the Peace Robert Prestage heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Newmarket, on July 10, 2009.
