MPR: Investigation into black market fishing on two reservations

"Suspected black market fishing operations on two Indian reservations in northern Minnesota are under federal investigation.

Enforcement agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service led the so-called 'takedown' of illegal netting and walleye-selling operations on the Red Lake and Leech Lake reservations last weekend. The takedown also involved state and tribal conservation officers.

No arrests were made, but an investigation continues, said Jeanne Cooney is a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorneys office in Minneapolis."
