Troopers: Shrimp catcher-processor lacked permit

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Prince of Wales Island
Type: Reporting requirement and permit violations
On 10/24/19 Alaska Wildlife Troopers on Prince of Wales Island were notified by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game of an issue with several overdue commercial shrimp tickets from the F/V Angie Lee. Investigation into the matter revealed that the captain of the Angie Lee was Travis Hagen, 29, of Craig. Hagen had been processing his catch by boxing and freezing his shrimp without the required catcher-processor permit. Hagen also had not been completing shrimp tickets as required by regulation. Hagen was issued two citations for the violations.
