"Commercial gillnet fishermen are allowed to keep one (1) giant sea bass taken incidentally per trip (FGC Section 8380)."
Thanks for the reply. This is the section of the law I feel is wrong. The BSB is probably already dead after being hauled in from the gill netting and to throw away a prefectly good food source that could at least be donated to hunger relief efforts both national or abroad is a shame. But I could be wrong so I would like to hear why this decision was made to waste ocean resources.
