Otter Trawl http://wunc.org en Recreational Fishing Group Seeks Ban On Shrimping Device http://wunc.org/post/recreational-fishing-group-seeks-ban-shrimping-device <p>A recreational fishing group wants the Marine Fisheries Commission to ban a device some commercial fishermen use to catch shrimp.<br><br><strong>Gurnal Scott:</strong> The device is called an 'otter trawl' but it's not what you think. It's a net used to sweep the ocean floor to catch shrimp. Joe Albea with the Coastal Fisheries Reform Group says those traps kill small fish<br><br><strong>Joe Albea:</strong> There is gear that can harvest the shrimp. We just have to do what the other states and the Gulf and Florida have done. They've regulated some of that gear off their beaches.<br> Thu, 23 Aug 2012 20:55:00 +0000 Gurnal Scott 1824 at http://wunc.org
