The Power of Observation

Record #:
Southern flounder fishermen use specialized nets called gill nets to catch fish, but endangered sea turtle species often get caught in these nets. In the recent past, the government threatened to close estuarine gill net fisheries. However, a series of agencies work with the national Marine Fisheries to ensure that these gill net fisheries stay open and that endangered species are protected.
