But this isn't like a short lobster. It's more like, I lost my lobster bag while hunting legally, current took it into a closed area, and a sea lion ate it and choked. I'm guilty of what, maybe littering?

Don't get me wrong, I hate this stuff. But these nets kill far too much every day and it's legal. I'm sure they kill sea lions every day.

Here's some photos of the bycatch from shrimping. Perfectly legal. Perfectly disgusting.
