Three members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe who were facing civil charges of fishing for elvers in Maine without a license have had their cases dismissed because they were charged using the wrong paperwork, according to an article in the Bangor Daily News.
Dozens of members of the tribe are facing civil and criminal elver charges as a result of a dispute between the state and the tribe over what kind of authority the tribe has to determine how many elver fishing licenses it issues to its members. Elvers are juvenile American eels, which are in great demand in Asian markets.
