Here’s a trouble-below-the-surface story that ran recently in the Seattle Times about “derelict fishing gear” that is (sadly) killing our wildlife. While not too many of us use our GBs for commercial fishing (hey, a couple of people have!), we do pop those crab and shrimp pots over the side at regular and frequent intervals…like whenever we can! Turns out– a lot of this sort of stuff is still “down there” and doing no good for any of us, and our fantastic marine resource, whatsoever. Thank goodness some good people are doing something about it!
