The Florida Gill Net Fiasco

Wanted to test embedding Google Plus posts in the blog. Not that I'm going to do it often, just to see how/if it works...

Please feel free to comment on the current issue of the on again, off again ban of gill netting by commercial fishermen in Florida, preferably on the Google post (given you have a Google account). If it doesn't render in your browser, that'd be nice to know too (in the blog's comments).


  1. Looks like it worked.

    I have no idea about Florida regs as they are today, but they were very lenient years ago for commercial and rec fishermen. I think the Pilchard rings we used to use years ago to catch sardines/pilchards are illegal now , due to their resemblance to gill nets. Not 100% sure on that one.
