Elaine is far more photogenic than myself, but if you need any copy, I might be able to offer some written testimony for you.
I've encountered gill nets and have a real fear of them. I could give you a vivid written account of what they are like to see
and how dangerous they are to diver and sea life alike. Sea life go into them because of the smell and then they get snared and
die simply adding to the baited smell to attract more sea life to its death. Being nylon, they never degrade or go away. They
just keep on killing.
If it would help any, let me know and I will write whatever you need to go with the pictures.
Enjoy, seahunt
