200-pound black sea bass shot and killed off La Jolla
May 18, 2007
The sea bass may have been well-known to local swimmers in La Jolla, authorities said. "People know that fish," said San Diego lifeguard Erik Jones. "He hangs out at 'A' buoy and has been a friend to many swimmers."
Omid Adhami, 34, faces two misdemeanor charges of unlawfully fishing in a reserve and possession of a protected species. If convicted, he faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for each offense, said state Department of Fish and Game warden Erik Fleet.
