Purse seine fishing

Anyone who has ever set a purse net anywhere knows better than to drag it across the bottom for a lot of reasons. Most of all, because of hangs on the bottom and also it would chafe the net up, wearing it out a lot sooner. It’s of no advantage to do that.
It seems that this petition is just another way of trying to create a problem that doesn’t exist.
