Brothers Charged with Elver Poaching

Portland Press Herald: New Hampshire Fish & Game officers have 2 men in custody and 2 buckets of baby eels as evidence of what they say is part of an international eel-poaching operation believed to be driven by a worldwide shortage of eels.
Two brothers from Maine – 35-year-old Justin Kinney of Mount Vernon and 29-year-old Matthew Kinney of Bremen – are charged with taking eels without a harvest permit and taking glass eels less than 6” long.
