The article relates the experience of environmental conservation officer (ECO) Jorge Sibbert of discovering two men who had 19 rainbow trout in a live trap during a routine inspection of anglers on the Salmon River in the town of Constable in New York. The two were questioned by the ECO, since the possession limit for the fish per day is five per person. It considers a practice called culling as illegal for its contribution to a high mortality rate for the fish that are let go. Fine imposed on each man by the town court was $100.
