In NC we don't seem to value our natural resources by the looks of our statutes and penalties. In Florida they do.

Hey, you can't even go wading anymore

I am a native of NC. The "bycatch captial of the east coast of the US". Our legislature lets us kill more fish for no reason than any other Atlantic Coast state. I hope they are proud.

Keys Fisherman Can't Dip A Toe In Keys Waters For Five Years

A commercial fisherman in the Florida Keys has been sentenced in a case involving undersized lobster. The sentence also keeps him out of the water for quite some time.

Alfredo Gonzalez was the captain of the lobster boat Perseverance when Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers stopped the vessel off the Gulf side of Marathon on Jan. 13, 2018.

On the boat they found 165 undersized lobster, as well has three hogfish that were out of season — and also too small.

On Jan. 3, Gonzalez pleaded no contest to one felony and 233 misdemeanors.

Judge Ruth Becker sentenced him to a year in jail and said he can't fish in Florida for the rest of his life.

According to the Monroe County State Attorney's office, the judge also banned him from Monroe County waters — including swimming and diving, even from shore — while he's on probation. That will last for five years.
