Fishing Violations to Have New Consequences

MIAMI (AP) _ Sport fishermen who violate regulations in Biscayne
National Park will find themselves back in school.
Park officials say the classes are part of a broader plan to
prevent the extinction of the park's fish population.
The most common violations in the park are catching protected
species, catching more fish than allowed per species and catching
small fish that have not reached reproductive age.
First-time violators will qualify for classes at the park
instead of fines.
The 200-square-mile Biscayne National Park extends from Key
Biscayne south to Key Largo.
