BURNT CHURCH, N.B. Fisheries officers seized Native lobster traps in Burnt Church yesterday, raising fears of another season of confrontation on Miramichi Bay.

A boat with several Native fishermen tried to set 10 traps, but Department of Fisheries officers hauled them up, said one Native.

"Every time he set one in the water, they'd (DFO) take them out," said Robert Sylliboy, a Native fisherman.
