Type: UPDATE - Fail to Complete Fish Tickets x20, Fail to File Intent to Operate x2, Prohibited Conduct-General x2
On 4/9/19, Justin Eberhard, age 45 of Sitka entered guilty pleas to six charges including two counts each of Fail to Complete Fish Tickets, Fail to File Intent to Operate and Prohibited Conduct-General, as part of an agreement through the Office of Special Prosecutions and Appeals. Eberhard was fined a total of $30,000 with $17,000 suspended and placed on probation for one year. Eberhard is required to pay unpaid fish taxes from 2017 and 2018 as a condition of probation.
The charges stem from an investigation into the unreported export of commercial troll caught salmon from the F/V Surf Bay during 2017 and 2018. Investigation revealed Eberhard had sold multiple shipments of fish out of the State of Alaska while acting as an unlicensed direct marketer. The fish caught and exported were never documented on a commercial fish ticket as required. The value of the unreported catch for 2017 and 2018 was in excess of $45,000 and represented large numbers of unreported king salmon. Investigation showed the fish were otherwise legally taken during open commercial seasons and with appropriate commercial permits.
