  • Description

    A SHRIMP BOAT RETURNED TO PORT WEDNESDAY RIDDLED WITH AUTOMATIC WEAPONS FIRE. THE INCIDENT IS BELIEVED TO BE PART OF A HOT CONTROVERSY BETWEEN CRAB FISHERMEN AND SHRIMPERS OFF FORT MYERS. HISTORICALLY THE CRABBERS HAVE HAD THE SHALLOW WATERS TO THEMSELVES TO SET OUT THEIR POTS TO GATHER THE FAMED STONE CRABS, BUT SHRIMPERS LATELY HAVE BEEN INVADING THESE WATERS WITH THEIR BOATS AND NETS, AND CUTTING THE CRABS MEN'S LINES. THERE HAVE BEEN THREATS OF VIOLENCE BY THE CRAB MEN, BUT WEDNESDAY'S INCIDENT MAY WELL BE THE FIRST SUCH ACT AND THAT MAY LEAD TO MORE TROUBLE. SHRIMPER CAPTAINS HAVE VOWED TO ARMS THEMSELVES TO BE READY THE NEXT TIME ANYTHING HAPPENS.
