PRINCE RUPERT, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- A field operation conducted by fishery officers in 2010, targeting the illegal sale of salmon to commercial fish buyers and processing facilities, has resulted in significant penalties for three men from the Prince Rupert area.
On June 23, 2014, in Prince Rupert Provincial Court, Glen Robert Wesley was found guilty of violations of the Fisheries Act that occurred over a two-month period in the summer of 2010 in the Port Simpson area of northern British Columbia. The honourable Judge H.J. Seidemann III fined the master of the commercial gillnetting vessel the HELEN H $20,000 for fishing for salmon during a closed time. In addition, the Judge ordered that Mr. Wesley be prohibited from participating in the commercial salmon fishery until September 30, 2014.
On April 24, 2014, in Prince Rupert Provincial Court, Carl Reginald Wilbur Sampson, vessel master of the commercial gillnetter PE 238 was found guilty of violations of the Fisheries Act. The honourable Judge H.J. Seidemann III fined Mr. Sampson $4,500 for selling fish illegally caught in contravention of the Fisheries Act, Section 33. Mr. Sampson's brother and co-accused, Gerald Gregory Sampson, was also found guilty of the same offence and sentenced to two months of house arrest.
-- The special enforcement project, which ran from mid-June to August 2010, uncovered a potential of 226 violations of the Fisheries Act and resulted in charges brought forward to Crown for approval and charges laid against seven harvesters. -- Three of the harvesters have now been sentenced while another four individuals are in various stages of court proceedings. -- Subject-matter experts from Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the commercial fishing industry assisted in the investigation by demonstrating through statistical analysis that the volume of salmon caught by these harvesters was impossible to have been achieved solely during the legal commercial fishery opening.
"One of the keys to protecting the future of fish stocks is effective enforcement to detect and deter illegal fishing activity," commented Larry Paike, Director, Conservation and Protection, Pacific Region. He continued, "This case illustrates that, with assistance from the public and the commercial fishing industry, the illegal harvesting and sale of salmon caught and sold into legal commercial openings can be successfully detected and prosecuted."
The Government of Canada is committed to safeguarding the long-term health and productivity of Canada's fisheries resources, and the habitat that supports them, for generations to come. Fisheries and Oceans Canada has a mandate to protect and conserve marine resources and to prosecute offenders under the Fisheries Act. It ensures and promotes compliance with the Act and other laws and regulations through a combination of land, air, and sea patrols, as well as education and awareness activities.
As part of Fisheries and Oceans Canada's work to end illegal activity, the Department asks the public for information on activities of this nature or any contravention of the Fisheries Act and Regulations. Anyone with information can call the toll-free violation reporting line at 1-800-465-4336.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
