Program Director Teri Shore exposed the high bycatch of whales, dolphins, sharks and giant sunfish in the California drift gillnet fishery during the 40th Annual Fisheries Forum hosted by the State Legislature on April 25, 2013 in Sacramento.
We are calling on the State of California to phase out the gillnet gear, which is banned in Oregon, Washington and on the High Seas.
