Sea Blue Pot Marker

These blokes do not give us even a sporting chance of avoiding their floating detritis. It is hard to imagine a more careless colour for a pot marker.

I also came across this

Ghost traps are a problem that the Americans have long recognised and have started to deal with

studies there suggest that ten percent of traps get lost each year and they will continue catching lobsters for several seasons - apparently

they now have to have a dissolving slat to let the lobsters out and disable the lost traps

    No excuse you got him fair and square!
    Doesn’t the EU have some regulation about that…..they seem to have regs about everything else!

    The EU doesn’t seem to have regs about really useful things, just obscure, shaky legislation about stuff like the colour of you diesel. Even then it’s pick and mix – the Belgians insist on white diesel, with hefty fines for the transgressors and the rest don’t much care.

    Apparently Belgian marinas and their support services are doing very poor business – why are we not surprised.

    2 things
    1 yes the EU have regs on this.
    2 If he did that around here he would lose them, the commercial boats would lift them cut the netting and the riser and dump them back over the side, and it would serve him right, after all proper dahn buoys are not that expensive

    Slightly off track. I was motoring up a shallow tributary of a river in northern NSW looking to anchor for the night when a bloke in a tinny chased me to tell me he had a fishing net up ahead. It was in a channel 30m wide and went from one side to the other, completely across with not a single mark on it anywhere!. It was nearly dark. Im so lucky he was there to stop me as I planned to go on up the creek. He did go away, and came back at about midnight to pull out his catch. I have no idea of the legality of it, must find out, but I am still shaking my head in disbelief (and relief)
