The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has cited several Eastern Shore men for fish and wildlife crimes. Fords Seafood in Rock Hall was found to have eight untagged oyster bushels in a walk-in freezer – up to 41% of which were undersized. The business received five citations which could equal up to $5,000 in fines. In another incident, three men were caught poaching oysters from a protected area in Talbot County. They were each cited for hand tonging oysters from Howell Point Sanctuary – the citation carries a maximum fine of $1,000 and can result in the suspension of a commercial license.
