    The fines are too smallAnd theatening layoffs is just a ploy.

    I suspect that this is the article.

    "Last month, Omega paid a $400,000 fine to the Securities and Exchange Commission after the company misrepresented to investors it was in compliance with covenants related to loan agreements with the federal government. The SEC called the company “a repeat offender of the Clean Water Act.”

    Digging a little more I found the SEC filing on the matter.

    I am pretty sure that it was not related to overfishing.
