Fine for possession of endangered species.

I thought the Trout Cod penalties were much higher than this.

Quote
A NARRANDERA restaurateur has been fined more than $7000 and handed a 12-month good behaviour bond after Department of Primary Industries (DPI) fisheries officers found endangered fish on his premises.

In addition to the $7300 fine he was issued, the 63-year-old restaurant owner has been ordered to pay $1220 in professional costs as a result of the trout cod and prohibited numbers of other species they found.

The investigators uncovered amounts of Murray cod and golden perch at the restaurant that exceeded the legal possession limits.

I fish because the little voices in my head tell me to.
