Get Derelict Gear out of Washington Waters

A bill in Washington State which would vastly improve reporting and recovery capacity for lost and derelict fishing gear is currently stalled in committee. If it doesn't make it out by the end of the day today (5:00PM) it will be dead. Every year ghost nets, lost traps, etc kill thousands of fish, birds and other marine life in Washington. This is a no brainer. Check out the osprey for more info and contact your state senator immediately.


  1. This really makes me upset that ppl dont get policed better in your waters!

  2. Sent an email earlier today. Sounds like the bill didn't make it out in time.
