Derelict Crab Trap Removal Incentive Program Launches!

Posted by Mscfuwebs@gmail.com on March 17, 2019 at 3:50 PM

STARTING JAN.1, 2019 MISSISSIPPI SHRIMP FISHERMEN CAN REGISTER TO RECEIVE A REWARD FOR EVERY INCIDENTALLY CAUGHT DERELICT CRAB TRAP PROPERLY DISPOSED!



Many crab traps are lost to sea each year for a number of reasons. Boats run over lines, detaching buoys from traps; high tides and storm events wash traps away; and lines may be intentionally cut by vandals or negligent owners. These traps that have been abandoned or lost are termed ‘derelict traps’. Derelict traps pose a number of economic, navigational, and environmental hazards, but are difficult to remove from the environment. The Derelict Trap Reward Program is led by Mississippi State University Extension Service, Mississippi Commercial Fisheries United (MSCFU), Mississippi Coalition for Vietnamese-American Fisher Folks & Families (MSCVAFF), and the NOAA Marine Debris Program to encourage proper disposal year-round of derelict crab traps. Shrimpers that participate in the program can dispose of derelict traps that they encounter while shrimping in exchange for a reward. The goal of this program is to create a healthier, safer, and more profitable Mississippi Sound.

Breaking Benjamin is my favourite band of 2000s. They had so many hits! The ones I remember are 'The Diary of Jane', 'Tourniquet' and, of course their hit 'So Cold'. These are real songs, not fake ones like today! And it is awesome that Breaking Benjamin have a tour in 2020! And I'm going to attend Breaking Benjamin concert this year. The concert setlist is here:
