AUSTIN – Texas game wardens have completed a two day operation to find businesses who were trying to circumvent laws regulating commercial seafood operations. More than 50 facilities, including seafood restaurants, fish markets, and wholesale commercial fish dealers, were targeted in the operation. More than 60 warnings and citations were issued for a range of commercial seafood health and safety related violations. At a Wood County business, game wardens seized around $1,600 worth of oysters packaged in 37 undocumented one gallon plastic storage bags. Investigators also took possession of undocumented oysters in Gregg, Nacogdoches and Angelina counties. They promise they will be conducting more frequent inspections in the future with warnings replaced with citations and arrest warrants.
