Coast Guard stops fishermen with 59 sharks in Texas

The U.S. Coast Guard stopped four Mexican fishermen illegally fishing off the Texas coast on Sunday.

The Coast Guard said the fishermen were in federal waters near Corpus Christi and had illegally fished 15 red snapper and 59 sharks.

"The illegal fishing of red snapper causes over 11 million dollars in lost revenue each year to U.S commercial fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico," a Coast Guard official said in a prepared statement. "Deterring this and other illicit activity on the U.S./Mexico maritime boundary line is one of our top priorities."
