Please Report Take of Any Marine Mammals
Please send me a take report of any and all marine mammals (seals and sea lions) during fishing season. We are required to report take of marine mammals to NOAA by January 15, 2020. This report will not include names, only total take of marine mammals during our fisheries. Please email or call in to me any incidental (death by entanglement) or lethal take of marine mammals, date of take, species (seal or sea lion), fishing gear type (gill net, beach seine) and marine area. If you happened to take a porpoise or another marine mammal, please report as well. I have attached a report form, this form was also provided in your annual regulations.
