|Large Great Hammerhead Killed - Celebrated by Media|
Posted by Captain Kevin on May 07, 2009 at 17:13:15:|
The attached link is a news story from Florida about an angler that caught a 13 ft., 1000+ lb. Great Hammerhead shark. The congratulatory news story is exactly the kind of ignorant news reporting that makes me want to vomit on my TV.
I wrote a letter of complaint to the station’s general comments line and their programming director. I would humbly like to request everyone else who frequents Diver.net to do the same. Please be respectful in doing so, as profanity-laden rants will result in no positive outcome. I do however feel it is important that we let this station know how destructive this type of trophy fishing is.

The text from my letter follows…please feel free to use any portion or all of it if you so desire!
Also, my thanks to Lawrence Groth for bringing this story to our attention via Facebook.
