Default R.i. - fisherman, dealer charged with illegal bass sale

ILLEGAL BASS SALE A Pawcatuck fisherman and a South Kingstown, R.I., seafood dealer were arrested Monday in connection with the illegal landing and sale of striped bass, the state Department of Environmental Protection said Wednesday.
Sean W. Bradshaw, 44, of Pawcatuck Ave. was charged with the landing and sale of striped bass without a commercial license, commercial fishing without a vessel permit, possession of untagged striped bass and the commercial sale of scup without a license and during the closed season.
The seafood dealer, John J. Guerrieri, 50, of Sand Plains Road, South Kingstown, was charged with buying seafood without a Connecticut seafood dealers license and operating a motor vehicle without a license.
The arrests took place Monday at Bradshaw's home following an investigation by the DEP's Environmental Conservation Police unit and the Rhode Island Environmental Police.
The Connecticut and Rhode Island environmental police acted on information that Bradshaw was catching bass and bringing striped bass back to his dock in the Pawcatuck River near his home, the DEP said in a news release. He would ice and store the fish at his home and Guerrieri, the Rhode Island seafood dealer, would then come to his house and buy them, the release said. At the time of the arrest, Connecticut and Rhode Island officers seized 42 striped bass weighting a total of 971 pounds, and 89 scup weighting a total of 87 pounds. The estimated commercial value of the bass was $2,913, the DEP said. All the fish was donated to the Amos House, a nonprofit agency that provides meals to the poor in Providence.
