3 accused of harvesting oysters in closed area

HOUMA, La. (AP) - The state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has accused three Houma men of harvesting oysters during a closed season in Terrebonne Parish.

The department said in a news release agents arrested 33-year-old Juan Resendiz-Zarraja, 19-year-old Jorge Enrique Loper-Mendoza and 26-year-old Gilberto Lopez-Pascual for allegedly taking oysters from Sister Lake Public Oyster Seed Reservation, which is closed for the season.

The captain of the vessel, De-Laoanaya, was also cited for violating the log book requirements.

Agents said they spotted the men dredging oysters Thursday morning and found 31 sacks of oysters in their possession.

Agents seized the vessel and returned the oysters to the water.
