Fines for Photos

When Poachers post photos of illegal fish, over limits, or mishandling of fish such as large Goliath Grouper, Tarpon, or Sailfish removed from the water it confuses and sets a bad example for others.   It can make other's think it's ok, or even cool to do the same.  There are even some charter fishing boats that put there own self promotion over the future health of their livelihood.   I have read of fines of up to $500 for such actions, but have yet to hear of anyone paying any dues.  Does FWC have a special task force for this ?  If so, Where are they ?  And why do I still see so many illegal photos ?
