McNeill Fishing Ltd., not former president, charged with fishing violations

A story in the Jan. 19 Observer incorrectly reported a recent conviction against McNeill Fishing Ltd. While the company pled guilty and paid $33,598 for some prawn fishing violations on Dec. 18, the story wrongly stated that Michael Stanley McNeill was also convicted personally. The Observer regrets the error. In fact, McNeill was not on either boat, the Mega Bite and the Zomby Woof, when the violations occurred last May near Haida Gwaii and Prince Rupert. He had also stepped down as president of McNeill Fishing Ltd. over a month before. >click to read< 16:36
