The additions were made possible in part by a donation from CCA Georgia, with the remaining costs covered by the sale of Georgia fishing licenses.

Speckled trout are far too valuable to be caught and penned as bycatch. By taking proactive measures now to close the “stop net” loophole and clarify haul seine regulations, we can eliminate this troubling trend and avoid the possible spread of the practice to other fisheries in the future.
We are grateful for your bipartisan commitment to marine fisheries conservation through the science-based forage fish measures included in the Forage Fish Conservation Act.
