Tulalip police, wildlife officers seize 700 illegal crab pots near Blaine
BLAINE — The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Tulalip Police have seized almost 700 illegal crab pots in the waters near Blaine.
The Bellingham Herald reports that officers seized the pots during a two-day sweep last week.
Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Russ Mullins says most of the pots belonged to Canadian commercial fisherman. He says fisherman will cross the border without proper licenses when their own waters have been fished out.
