I do not support this petition

I do not support this petition to regulate purse seining gear. It would be interesting to hear what the supporters even know about a purse seine net. Most have copied and pasted a generic statement without any knowledge of the fishery. I urge everyone to take the time to understand how they work and why it would be absurd for the fishermen to even allow their nets to "drag" the surface.
