its not so long ago a fisherman in Peel   made  an error in an entry in his boats log , no fish taken or damage to stocks or the environment ,  he had to pay a similar fine ,  penalties  in the fishing world are severe and they need to be , 

what I find strange in this case in  the South  is the fisherman has not even bothered  to mount an appeal  to the courts for a reduce sentence , only run to his MHK  looking for sympathy , its the old saying  If you cant do the time (fine)  then don't do the crime ,

He’s already spent £6000 apparently on legal fees on top of the £10,000 fine. Anyone would have given up challenging at that stage.

Most people would have given up when they were very clearly banged to rights, and not spent a penny other than the fine.
