Stop gillnetting of bonefish in Hawaii

Although we need to be sensitive and respective of area-native culture and practices, the availability of modern monofilament gillnets ("lay nets") changes the game to genocide. Further it is being conducted unchecked in illegal zones. The objective is not to obstruct throw netting or traditional methods but prevent the elimination of entire populations of the extraordinary Hawaiian bonefish en masse.

Signed! I wonder if the Bonefish & Tarpon trust is acting on this one? I assume they must be! I joined their organization a few years ago shortly after they were founded since they do such an important job and I encourage anybody who enjoys fishing for bonefish to join up!
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.
