Gill net proclamation by DMF

The made a new rule last week to require attendance for small mesh only gill nets. This is only for a certain time window and only in certain waters of the state. This proclamation will indeed help to slow the waste of fish in those waters. It is not enough. It does not mention the large mesh “flounder nets” that waste so many adult sized red drum, turtles, marine mammals and most everything else all spring, summer and fall. We have to keep the pressure on. Keep up the emails and phone calls to the director. He is a nice guy so don’t be rude, but still keep letting him know that we will not be happy until we have full time 24/7 attendance of all gill nets in all waters in NC. That is the only thing that will stop scenes of needless waste like this:
