How many trips will that money cover, in your opinion. Ghost pots were discussed before, many say they have no effect on the crabbing, but I've read where that is not true, according to some watermen.  Congrats on getting money to clean up the ghost pots, every little bit helps.

I've done several ghost post clean ups in different areas of the bay.  It was rare to get a pot with a crab or fish.  Dirty pots don't catch crabs.  Some ghost pots get oyster spat on them and it would be better to leave them....

It's a terrapin issue here.   They continue to catch terrapins...

For sure have seen turtles caught and dead in a pot some live aboard set in the marina.  Once the bait wears out or those lost in the main stem of the bay probably arenít much of a long term issue.   I wouldnít declare them artificial reef though.

In FL commercial guys set them in so shallow water they often show up at low tide and or can be caught in props if no longer marked.  They have moratorium weeks when everything must be pulled and then anything remaining is derelict.
