LI fisherman accused of illegally harvesting fluke – wire fraud and falsification of federal records

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday charged a Long Island fisherman with wire fraud and falsification of federal records in connection with a scheme they say resulted in the illegal harvesting of more than 86,000 pounds of fluke over three years. During an appearance at U.S. District Court in Central Islip on Wednesday, Charles Wertz Jr. of East Meadow entered a plea of not guilty to the charges, which stem from fishing that federal prosecutors say took place between 2009 and 2011.
