The Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited three fishermen late last month for violating commercial fishing rules in the Aleutian Islands.

In Adak, troopers fined Tran Lucky of Puyallup, WA $260 for working aboard the F/V Alaska Victory without a valid license.

The vessel’s captain -- David Bishop of Milton, WA -- received the same fine for employing an unlicensed crew member.

Meanwhile, Dean Pedersen of Wasilla was cited for configuring his cod pots illegally near Sand Point.

Pedersen operates the F/V Francis and is scheduled to appear in Homer District Court in May.
