    I used to occasionally catch a cow-nosed ray when I lived back in southern Maryland. Took forever to get them in on light tackle. Always released them, except one, which we ate. Decent white meat, but tough and chewy, like a tough lobster.

    Never saw any of the carnage described in that article. Most everyone just cut the line when they hooked one so they could get back to fishing. Live and let live.

    www.theguardian.com is the Limey version of the National Enquirer......

    FAKE as FAKE can ever be. Total Chicken Little syndrome at it's best.

    Maybe...time will tell. The Guardian is just reporting what scientists are saying, along with many other news reporting agencies. Hope you're right...

    Shark..................

    I heard there are plans for a tall zip line tower to be built at the end of the soon to be completed Home Port pier with a cable connected to another tower at the hill at Punta San Felipe. There will be numerous net baskets connected to the cable that the US Navy Dolphins will drive the little Sea Cows into and then be zipped right over to the awaiting swimming pools at the new rescue center.

    Nice plan though, I'm really pissed that Leonardo didn't go public with the stocks.

    It does make more sense to relocate them to a safe haven with conditions as close as possible to the upper gulf. Holding them in captivity has never been successful. Returning them to the upper gulf after gill net fishing has "been eliminated" is nothing more than a pipe dream. Better add restoring the Colorado River flow to the gulf to that list which will never happen either.

    That's great for the 9 to 5 type of enforcement. The gill netters all work from 9 to 5, too. But the opposite shift under the cover of darkness.
