Fisherman Gets Prison for Illegal Harvest of Almost 200,000 Striped Bass


APMichael D. Hayden (not pictured) was sentenced for playing a part in illegal fish harvesting of striped bass.

A Maryland fisherman has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for his role in the illegal harvesting of nearly 200,000 pounds of striped bass.

Prosecutors said Michael D. Hayden, of Tilghman Island, Maryland, was sentenced Friday in federal court in Baltimore.

Hayden will be required to spend six months on home detention after completing his prison sentence. He has been ordered to pay nearly $500,000 in restitution to the state as well as a $40,000 fine.

Hayden acknowledged as part of a plea deal that from at least 2007 to 2011 he and co-conspirators illegally harvested 185,925 pounds of striped bass from the Chesapeake Bay.

A telephone message seeking comment left Sunday at a listing for Hayden was not immediately returned.
