Via Bahama Islands Info:
It has come to the attention of the Department of Marine Resources that persons on a number of islands of The Bahamas are netting (hauling) bonefish.
The Department of Marine Resources wishes to remind the public that the netting (hauling) of bonefish is illegal in The Bahamas. The public is further advised that it is illegal to buy or sell bonefish in The Bahamas.
It’s all about maintaining the sportfishing quality, as it should be. (h/t to Moldy Chum)
