OK, here is the story as told to me by a co-worker. He said an acquaintance of one of his friends had a little run-in with the law while illegally fishing for red snapper a couple of weeks ago in the Gulf of Mexico. The snapper season is not open yet, but this guy caught a good many of them anyway, and thought he could outwit the authorities by filleting the fish while still well out to sea, then hiding the fillets in zip lock bags and stashing them in a duffel bag on board. On his way in, he was stopped and checked. I don't know if it was the Coast Guard or conservation officials doing the checking. The officer checking him said, "I'm going to ask you one time, and it will be in your best interest to be truthful. Do you have any illegal fish on board your boat?" The guy, sensing they knew something, fessed up to the illegal snapper. The officer supposedly said, "good thing you were truthful". He then showed the fisherman a video on a laptop. The video showed the man fishing, then filleting the snapper on board, then throwing the carcasses overboard where they could be seen drifting away. Supposedly, the video was shot from a satellite, and it showed time, date, and GPS coordinates of the guys boat. I understand satellite imagery is good enough to make out car license plates from space, so I suppose video is also possible. I was surprised that it would be used for fishing regulation enforcement. I guess if it were the Coast Guard, they would have access to such imagery. You guys think this story is possible? Ever hear similar stories?
