New Zealand - Bycatch Mitigation!

And talking of smart young people.
And I cite.
"So let's look at the real problems, which is this loophole of encouraging fishers to get back their hooks when they catch sharks... that loophole that allows them to bring it on board, kill it and throw it back and not count it."
The proposed legislation is certainly a step in the right direction - but mandating that Sharks be released alive but also collecting all the relevant data about that important incidental mortality would be even better!

Well said Riley!
