The co-owner of the Portland Aquarium has been arrested - again.  Ammon Covino was originally arrested on allegations he tried to illegally obtain marine animals in Florida.  He was released on bond.  Now, Covino has been arrested again for allegedly trying to get his nephew, Pete Covino the fourth, to destroy potential evidence in Florida regarding an order for undersized and illegal nurse sharks.  Ammon Covino was out on a $100,000 bond and the second arrest could cause him to forfeit that money.  Pete Covino was also arrested.  Fish and Wildlife and NOAA are investigating the case.
